Dasos Capital in partnership with the EIB and ISIF are heading up a forestry fund in Ireland of €112 million
Green Belt, Ireland's largest private forestry group are proud to be the national manager for Dasos, with responsibility for assessment, acquisition and management of the relevant properties. Quality, species and access are important requirements when considering each purchase. Ideally, areas of Sitka Spruce no less than 40 acres are to be considered and a similar area for land purchases.
Green belt will assess the land and/ or forest and a realsitic market price can be negotiated. We would urge those considering selling land and/ or forestry to have title documents prepared or in the process of being prepared through their solicitors. This will significantly improve closing time.
We have seen many parties who planted in the last 15 - 20 years seek to sell their forestry having enjoyed the generous premium. Now many are looking to reinvest the monies from the sale of their forestry into either new plantations or other ventures.
