The changing dynamics of the commercial forestry market

1 min

The Forest Market Review provides a fresh insight into the commercial forestry market, which has seen significant growth over recent years. 

This new report – which looks at the market in Great Britain across the 2022 calendar year – has been produced by John Clegg & Co, which is Strutt & Parker’s specialist forestry arm.

The review highlights that there were record levels of investment in commercial forestry in 2022, high levels of market activity and there is still lots of capital waiting to be invested.

However, a range of global factors have led to a shift in market sentiment which meant that more cautious pricing became prevalent as the year progressed.

Read the full report to find out more about:

·      Amount of stocked or plantable commercial forest land sold

·      Total price of commercial forest sold

·      Average values per stocked hectare

·      Speed of transactions

·      Market outlook
