If you’re interested in a forestry rights agreement
Choosing to rent or lease your land to Crown Forestry will depend on your circumstances and preference, and we’ll be happy to talk through both options with you.
If you’re interested, get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
After we get your email
We’ll work with you to assess the suitability of your land. If it all checks out, and you’re interested in progressing, we’ll then:
- undertake a forestry evaluation that’ll include a full financial report
- talk through the feasibility study and financial report with you, agree the rental or lease conditions with you and enter into a formal agreement. Proposals will be tailored to reflect local issues
- engage a management contractor to plan and oversee establishment of the forest.
Rental will reflect local conditions and the need for a commercial return, so the quality of the land and the proximity to ports or processing plants will be important.
