The German forestry market - July 2017

Forests account for the second largest land use in Germany behind agriculture. Around a third of the surface area of Germany is covered with an estimated 90 billion trees.

Approximately half of this forest is in private ownership. Large forest owners are very few in number and the majority are noble families.

The transaction market for forest property is also very fragmented. On average, only approximately two hectares change hands per transaction for €15,000. The annual transaction volume totals little more than €300m.
