Woodland might not seem the most obvious form of land for someone to purchase but you would be surprised. In recent years, there has been a growth in the number of individuals wishing to return to mother-nature. Small private woodlands are bought for a wide variety of pursuits including paintballing, badger watching, woodworkers and naturists.

WoodlandIf you are expecting an income from your private woodland, then you need to look at your figures carefully and do some research. Only larger acreage yields any substantial revenue from timber sales and on most woodland, there are limits on how much can be felled per annum and the majority of the wood must be replenished.

Having said this, there are now agencies that help the private smaller woodland owner sell mature timber, so there is some revenue generating opportunities with woodland.

Woodland can also be a good investment but again it has to be in the right location. It is unlikely that any woodland would obtain planning permission for a residence and therefore, most people who buy woodland do so for pleasure and enjoyment. You can put non-permanent structures such as sheds or tree houses in woodland and you can also camp in a caravan for up to 28 days per year.
