  • Robinia Invest establishes plantations in Germany and sells forestry plots primarily to private clients.
  • Please only complete the form if you are an investor potentially considering forestry as an investment.
  • Setting up forestry plantations is a specialised business. We are unable to assist individuals who own land and are looking for advice on plantation establishment, etc.
  • Please provide the correct contact information (inc telephone number), we tend to speak to investors in the first instance as we provide a range of investments.
  • Freehold investments are popular with most investors, as owning the land offers them several important benefits. One of those is that of security, as the land legally belongs to them and not to Robinia Invest. Should the land value increase over time, which it has over the last 10 years, then investors benefit from that directly as well.

Our plantations: We specialise in the establishment of Robinia and Paulownia hardwood plantations, which we offer as a high yield forestry investment, with the primary objective of maximising returns for our clients. Robinia and Paulownia trees are fast growing hardwoods, which can be commercially harvested after 15 years. Once established, specialised management companies, utilising modern cultivation techniques to ensure optimal growing conditions, intensively manage the forestry plantations.

Robinia and Paulownia trees are truly sustainable, as both species will regrow from stump after being harvested. This unique characteristic allows our clients to make consecutive rotations at lower cost.

Our location: We have chosen Germany as the location for our plantations, as it is a stable country in Europe both politically and economically. Notably for UK investors there are also several tax incentives for owning commercial forestry in the European Economic Area, of which Germany is a part. All our forestry investment agreements are under German law, which provides additional security for our clients.

A German notary who ensures the land is free of encumbrances, notarises all freehold purchases.
As Germany is so close to the UK, a plantation visit is something that can easily be arranged. A flight to Schönefeld airport in Berlin only takes an hour and a half after we can pick you up from the airport and show you the plantations.
