Purchase of forest land with standing timber
Purchase of forest in the form of standing timber and forest holdings. Renlog administers and manages more than 2,000 hectares of forest land across Estonia. We also purchase cut forest land and overgrown grassland and agricultural land. Selling the forest to a domestic forest management company prevents the land from falling into the ownership of a foreign investment fund and guarantees jobs in the forestry sector.
Purchase of forest holdings
Purchasing of standing timber means that the forest owner sells the cutting rights to the standing timber on their land and receives a return based on the cubic metres of the wood.
Purchase of forest land
Purchase of forest land and the sustainable management of forest holdings are one of our primary areas of operation. Over the course of more than ten years of operation, we have proven ourselves as responsible forest managers and have not compromised our principles by selling out to Scandinavian investment funds in pursuit of quick profits.
Even if selling forest land is the only way for a forest owner to secure themselves financially, they can always rest assured that their forest will be well managed in our hands. We do everything to preserve the inherent biodiversity of the habitat and ensure it continues to provide shelter and protection for birds and animals in the future.
We use modern and environmentally friendly forestry equipment in forest management, enabling efficient utilisation of the harvested resources even in challenging conditions.
Price of forest
The price of forest depends primarily on the variety of trees growing on the forest land. As a rule, higher returns can be expected from coniferous forests compared to deciduous forests. This is due to the fact that coniferous forests generally have a higher volume of wood per hectare, measured in cubic metres, compared to deciduous forests. Among deciduous trees, birch is generally priced higher.
The price of a forest is determined based on factors such as the age of the forest, its quality, and the growing stock available. It is not uncommon for a healthy forest stand to be affected by parasites or decay.
When assessing the value of a forest, factors such as the fertility of the forest land and the size of the forest property are taken into account. Naturally, the location of the property in relation to the nearest purchasing points also plays a role. The basis for preparing a price offer relies on the valid forest management plan or the survey data collected during field work.
Purchase of forest holdings
Purchase of forest holdings all over Estonia If needed, our forest assessor will come to the site and will give the forest owner a complete overview of their forest’s estimated growing stock and the overall health of the stand.
We also buy standing brush and partially or completely clearcut forest holdings.
We offer our clients thorough assistance in solving legal questions related to the sale of different forests and we do everything to make sure that the administrative procedures related to the transaction are as transparent and understandable as possible.
Purchase of cut forest land
Purchase of cut forest land indicates that the forest land being purchased has been partially or fully cleared.
As a forward-looking forest company, we buy clearcut land to sustainably manage it ourselves and thereby promote local entrepreneurship and create additional jobs in the forestry sector.
Selling forests to a domestic forest management company creates conditions that ensure the forest land doesn’t end up in the possession of foreign capital which at the expense of managing our forests support their own pension funds and its managers.
Purchase of standing timber
The purchase of a standing timber or the transfer of cutting rights indicates that the forest owner sells the standing timber on his forest land with an agreed price or based on timber yield.
After cutting has been finished and the timber has been realised, the profit will be transferred to the forest owners account. As previously agreed, harvesting costs have been reduced from the profit in favour of the forest company.
Forest land as such will still stay in possession of the forest owner, and in the future they can manage it accordingly or they can sign additional agreements with a forest company for reforestation.
