Having an unlimited duration enables the fund to focus on long-term sustainable management of forests and arable land.
We cooperate with farmers who undertake crop rotation and thus protect arable land from degradation. Our aim is to commit at least 3% of farmland to the causes of biodiversity and agri-environment. We also plan to afforest less fertile land. What is more, we provide good conditions for farmers by giving them high-yielding land and signing long-term rental contracts. These factors allow farmers to expand their activities and create jobs in rural areas.
The value of a forest or arable land is the price that buyers are willing to pay. It is affected by many factors, therefore, the exact criteria buyers take into account when assessing the value of a forest or farmland depend on their aims. Because of this, differences in bids may arise.
The INVL Sustainable Timberland and Farmland Fund II team prioritises sustainable asset management and thus carefully evaluates both forest and angricultural land proposals. If you are considering selling a forest or farmland and would like to receive an offer from an experienced team aiming at long-term and sustainable asset management, please contact us by submitting an enquiry above.
Determining the value of a forest:
The evaluation of a forest begins with the analysis of its inventory reports. Attention is paid to tree species composition, wood quality, sanitary conditions, soil productivity, and the age structure of a forest, which determines whether harvestable age has been reached. The value is also affected by the situation in the roundwood market and binding environmental restrictions.
If there are trees of different ages in your forest, it is likely that firms investing in felling processes and equipment or logging companies will offer the highest price for the mature part of the forest, but may offer less for the growing part of the forest and young tree stands.
Determining the value of farmland:
To estimate the value of agricultural land, qualitative parameters of the plot are assessed. The condition and fertility of farmland, accessibility, soil structure, shape of drainage systems, and various other criteria are all taken into consideration.
Forest valuation process:
To find out the preliminary value of the forest, the owner should refer to the State Forest Service, which collects and manages information on all forests, and request a forest inventory report for the forest in question. The final value of the forest can be determined by a professional forester.
Forest inventory reports contain:
Forestry specialists check precise forest inventory figures during an on-site review of the forest parcel.
Please note that forest owners do not necessarily have to submit the request to the State Forest Service themselves. Since subsidiaries of INVL Sustainable Timberland and Farmland Fund II have access to the forestry service cadastre, it can obtain the preliminary inventory data from the database to assess the forest being sold and offer the owner a fair price.
Land valuation process:
To find out the preliminary value of the farmland owned, the landowner should refer to the Centre of Registers, whose database contains cadastral information on agricultural land, and obtain information on the plot in question. The final value can be determined by an agricultural professional.
Cadastral data include such information as:
Land management specialists verify cadastral data during a physical inspection of the plot.
Please note that landowners do not necessarily have to refer to the Centre of Registers themselves. Since INVL Sustainable Timberland and Farmland Fund II uses various land databases, it can obtain the preliminary data to assess the plot being sold and offer the owner a fair price.
