A tailored approach

In order to cater for natural as well as plantation forest valuations, we have developed two specific approaches within our general methodology.

Natural forest valuation

For the valuation of tree assets in natural forests (concessions), we have developed detailed procedures that take into account tree stock inventory, precise conditions and parameters (e.g. tree growth, conversion rates) as set by the forest management plan and forestry operations.

Plantation forest valuation

Contrary to natural forests, plantations are generally managed as even-aged forest management units with a limited number of species and detailed knowledge of growth potential. Our approach is tailored to the ensuing requirements, using very carefully generated yield data for input. The basis for valuations of plantations are growth-yield tables for the various tree species. Form valuations uses a wide range and variety of yield tables and if needed new tailor made yield tables can be developed by us.
