(45,000 acres) of forestry and land across Ireland. This has the the focus of improving efficiencies within the fragmented private forestry market.
What this means for private forest owners is that there are pre qualified purchasers in the market. These purchasers are seeking both green land for planting as well as semi mature forestry.
For many, once their 20 year premiums have expired, they are happy to consider the sale of the forestry asset to release the equity built up in the forest.
To make sure you get the best price and value from your semi mature forest, it is essential that it is measured and assessed thoroughly. This entails taking plots throughout the forest, measuring top heights and yield classes of each compartment. Ideally inspection paths will be cut into the forest to allow access.
Green Belt can carry out the full assessment on your forest. Initially using drone technology to assess the stand and get a 'live' image of the forest, we can then identify the differences in compartment make up and create a plot plan. After collecting this data (recorded by GPS points) it is worked through an algorithm to establish a value of the crop.
