Interest in forestry and woodland property investment in Scotland has increased noticeably over the last couple of years. However, there are many legal issues to consider with such an investment.
Whether you are an individual investor, community or a Trust seeking further investment opportunities, Turcan Connell can provide you with all the necessary advice on the acquisition, sale, lease and management of forestry/woodland property.
Forestry Sales and Acquisitions
Turcan Connell’s Land and Property Team is actively involved in acting for both sellers and purchasers of forestry in Scotland. We maintain good relations with the main selling agents and are kept up to date as new forests and woodland properties are brought to market. The list below gives examples of what is available for sale on the open market via a variety of agents and provides a link to the Particulars of Sale. Turcan Connell does not deal with marketing/sale agencies. If you need some help finding the right property for you, or if you have queries regarding a particular property listing, we recommend contacting the agents directly in the first instance.
Once you have identified a property you would like to put in an offer for, or if you would like some legal and/or tax advice regarding forestry investment generally, we would be happy to assist. With our depth of knowledge and experience, and a Land and Property Team made up of solicitors qualified in Scotland and also in England and Wales, Turcan Connell is well placed to act for prospective purchasers in the acquisition of forest and woodland property both North and South of the border.
Diversification of Forestry Properties
In addition to the sale and acquisition of forestry property, Turcan Connell can advise on the many diversification opportunities that apply to such properties. Our land and property team currently advise on a number of wind farm projects involving forestry properties. Other investment opportunities, which can provide a significant source of income for owners of woodland and forestry properties, include timber leases, planting grant schemes, hydro schemes and biomass projects.
