Forests and woodlands

There are many different types of forest and woodland in terms of size, species, age, silvicultural systems, structure and condition. These forests and woodlands are also owned and managed for a range of reasons. Accordingly, the valuation of this diverse and often complex asset involves a wide range of factors, some of which are of a specialist nature.

The main factors that affect market value and the valuation process and approaches to woodland valuation are outlined in this section.
