The main section of The UK Forest Market Report focuses on completed sales of commercial forest properties over 20 hectares in size which are predominantly conifer. The Report includes publically recorded sales and, where possible, off market sales. By their nature, off market sales are difficult to quantify accurately and may therefore be incomplete.
We refer to individual years (2017 etc.) but the actual period each year covers is the 1st October to the 30th September of the following year.
Other woodlands are covered in the Mixed Woodlands section.
The UK Forest Market Report has been produced since 1998 and the data series now covers 20 years, incorporating some 1,643 transactions totalling some £1,032m and 254,000 stocked hectares. As such we believe it is the most comprehensive published record of forestry transactions in the UK.
