The facts that represent the value that commercial timber investments within the UK produce simply speak for themselves. Since the beginning of the 20th century, timber has outpaced both the FTSE 100 and the S&P 500, having risen by an average of 15% each year since 1988. For the last decade UK timber has been even more impressive, showing an average return of just over 15.8% per annum.
The UK forestry sector is booming. The cumulative value of the UK investment forestry market has grown from £45 million in 2010 to £177.3 million in 2019 – That’s a 294% increase in just 9 years. UK timber has a high degree of prestige amongst international consumers, making British timber products highly sought-after. According to the Forestry Commission there will be a 30% decline in timber availability after 2030 in the UK, which will act as a primary driving force in continuing to push prices north.
UK timber markets are remaining buoyant and have remained on track with the fantastic 30% rise in log prices that we experienced from March 2018 to March 2019. The demand for all products also remains strong.
