Craigmore launched its first forestry business in 2010, focusing on afforestation of marginal farmland. Since then, forestry has become an increasingly significant part of the portfolio.

Our strategy is to build a mixed portfolio of existing forests and land suitable for planting. We plant new forests where this is the most appropriate land use – usually less productive grazing land including properties that are steep, have poor soil fertility or erosion issues.

Newly planted forests provide a dual revenue stream – firstly from the sale of carbon credits and then from the sale of timber for harvest.
