Preparing your Forest or Land Parcel For Sale

A vendor needs to prepare and present a property for sale correctly and a purchaser needs to assess the property to ensure it meets his/her investment requirements.

Therefore, presenting a forest property for sale correctly is critical, and usually ensures a timely transaction timeframe.

Factors to be taken into account in preparing a forest for sale include:

  • Area
  • Location
  • Stand mapping & preparing current certified species map
  • Forest premium payments
  • Installation of inspection paths
  • Species & Yield Class data
  • Access issues including forest roads
  • Management actions & reports
  • Environmental restrictions (if any)
  • Ownership documentation
  • Price range

Forestry and the timber industry has been very much an under developed sector in Ireland and I feel this new website foresttomarket.ie is an ideal vehicle to help to promote and coordinate investors, farmers, auctioneers and all involved in the sector. I congratulate Paddy Bruton and all his team in Forestry Services Ltd. on this one-stop-shop website initiative and wish them every success in the future.

In an environment of historically low interest rates and bond yields; volatile and nervous equity markets; uncertain property markets; the investment options are not at all clear or straightforward at the moment. For any investor, diversification is key and in that context, forestry can play a very valuable role. This website will make a very valuable contribution to investors interested in sourcing this investment option.
