Save the Date – The UK Forest Market Report to Launch on 25 November 2020

1 min

What has been the impact on forestry investment as a result of lockdown in 2020? What are the emerging new trends? What role does woodland creation really play in our net zero ambitions?

John Clegg & Co, in partnership with Tilhill Forestry, will answer these questions and more at the launch of this year’s UK Forest Market Report on 25 November. The launch will, for the first time, take place via an online webinar.

The 22nd edition of the Forest Market Report 2020, this year themed ‘The Climate for Woodlands’, will provide a snapshot of the UK commercial forestry and woodland investment market, including a review of the role of forestry in mitigating climate change and the environmental and political drivers involved in tree planting.

It is interesting to note that the market for forestry has remained robust throughout the Covid pandemic as investors seek to acquire land-based assets with strong environmental credentials. Interest in natural capital and humanity’s essential need for nature is a major driving force.

The launch will include a presentation from Ece Ozdemiroglu, founder of the Economics for the Environment Consultancy (EFTEC), Confor Chief Executive Stuart Goodall, Tilhill’s Head of Investment & Property Bruce Richardson. The event will be chaired by Jon Lambert, head of John Clegg & Co.

Tickets for ‘The UK Forest Market Report 2020: The Climate For Woodlands’ are available to purchase on Eventbrite.
