Forest estate asset

Forest Valuation

Forest valuations are commonly carried out using one or more of the following three approaches: the sales comparison approach, the cost approach, and the income approach. Although in Finland a method called summation value is commonly applied, the income approach is increasingly gaining popularity as the forest asset class gains ever more attention from institutional investors. Outside Finland, we have conducted valuations in Sweden, the Baltics, Brazil, Colombia and Kenya.

Metsä ja Puut service

In Finland, where all forest inventory data is openly available, we have built a fully automated web portal for purchasing valuation reports of any forest estate in the country. Using real transaction data from our partners, we deliver forest values based on the market valuation, income valuation and summation valuation approaches.

The service can be accessed by anyone directly on the web portal and it is charged based on either specific usage or through a fixed subscription.
