Late rotation commercial forestry entering productive phase


Moness is located west of Griffin, and extends to about 1,389ha in total. The productive timber area (CCA) is 959ha (69%) and predominantly consists of pure stands of Sitka spruce, with minor components of other conifers providing diversity throughout. The majority of the current timber crop was planted in the 1980s.

The forest is entering its productive phase, with a Weighted Average Age (WAA) of 39 years old. Harvesting can commence once a purchaser revises the Long Term Forest Plan, and offers the opportunity for timber income over the next 20 year period.

Growth rates vary across the forest, principally as a function of site conditions and topography. Full compartment plans and schedules are available in the Data Room.

The seller has been investigating opportunities for further planting of open ground to enhance biodiversity across the forest and a trial plantation of upland willow scrub was planted in 2022/23. There is potentially scope to extend this over a wider area if the trial is successful.
