Timber Production and Renewable Energy
The Realforest Group owns over 2000 acres of commercial forestry in Scotland.
The majority of our projects comprise plantations of Sitka Spruce with a wide spread of harvesting times.
We also grow Japanese Larch, and native broadleaves including Ash, Birch and Alder.
These sustainable forestry projects will serve a variety of objectives including the UK timber markets, the biofuels industry and national biodiversity and carbon sequestration targets.
1,100 acres of mainly spruce plantation on the Isle of Mull.
In three separate compartments straddling the river Forsa.
Harvesting between 2019 and 2029, well placed to benefit from the planned transport, shipping and technological changes benefitting the West Coast timber markets.
