Purchasing a forest

It is usually thought that the forest will just go on growing. However, a forest on its own is unable to generate income. The sustainable and profitable management of a forest is a complex and time-consuming process, the success of which predominantly depends on the forestry manager making the right decisions. This is why the team of LignaMets OÜ, founded in 1998, only consists of specialists who have a higher education in forestry, whose knowledge and experience in forest management guarantee a reliable relationship between forest owners in Estonia and our company.

Purchasing farmland

Purchasing farmland is one of our company’s primary fields of activity. Farmland also comprises grassland. In addition, LignaMets OÜ handles the management of abandoned farmland and reconstructing land improvement objects, as the result of which farmland can be leased to producers in Estonia. Our experienced specialists will advise you in all matters related to farmland, be it estimating the value of arable land, lease contracts on farmland, agricultural subsidies, the fertility of the soil or lease prices of farmland.

 

In order for agriculture to be profitable, agricultural companies need to have a sufficient portfolio of farmland. As you are well aware. Therefore, large producers have an upper hand in the global agricultural competition, and this is a rising trend. In Estonia as well where agricultural companies are primarily production operators and not landowners, the land ends up in the hands of investors who focus on leasing farmland.

Selling land

The main fields of activity of our company (purchasing forest land and farmland) have created a strong foundation for us for selling land. Thanks to LignaMets OÜ, you also have the opportunity to invest in the land of Estonia and in this way increase your wealth. When we sell forests and farmland, we often end up stating that these are rural areas with beautiful nature or you can potentially create other value on the land we sell beside managing the forest or leasing farmland. In our portfolio, you can find:

  • Various groves
  • Country houses
  • Farmland
  • Naturally picturesque locations where you can build a home
  • Real estate developments near cities

Green energy

Our company has been investing in green energy in Estonia since 2017, thus taking its first steps toward a caring and sustainable future. Today, our 10 solar farms produce renewable energy for Estonia with the total production capacity of green energy being 4.1 megawatts. Additionally, we have contributed to the development of Aulepa’s 48-megawatt wind farm with our 5 immovables. This is one of the largest green energy production units of Enefit Green.

 

The goal of LignaMetsOÜ in this environmentally friendly energy sector is to reach Power Purchase Agreements which means the direct sale of electricity in order to offer renewable energy at a more affordable price to factory owners, real estate developers, land- or even homeowners. With that goal in mind, our company has already initiated and will be initiating several projects around Tartu.

Maximising forests’ value

Our company, in cooperation with scientists from the Estonian University of Life Sciences, is creating test areas of chaga, which is known as a medicinal fungus, in Estonian forests and is continuously researching the content of bioactive substances in different species of chaga. Since the outcomes of the research have been positive so far, in 2022 we opened a mushroom laboratory in Tartu where forest owners in Estonia have the opportunity to purchase wooden dowels of chaga, the most powerful antioxidant with the best properties, in order to use them to increase the value of their forest and earn income.

 

In additional to medicinal fungi, each land- and forest owner can buy logs of black alder inoculated with the shiitake mycelium and enjoy these edible mushrooms that have been known for over a thousand years from spring until autumn. You can see all products in the e-store of Inopure. We hope to soon create our first test areas on freshly clear-cut areas where we can inoculate tree stumps with the mycelium of medicinal fungi found in Estonia’s nature.

 

The biodiversity of Estonia’s forests supports looking beyond the usual forest management and offers new opportunities for creating additional value in the forest. The possible profit matters, of course, but trying out new things and getting joy out of discovering as well as experiencing success are positive emotions that help our team members add new flavours to their everyday life.

Feedback

Kinnistu OÜ has cooperated with the team of LignaMets for at least 20 years if not more. It is even hard to recall our first meeting. As competitors, cooperation partners and just great colleagues we have never put a contract or agreement down on paper, the notarised sales and purchase contracts are an exception, of course. What I want to say with this is that the team of LignaMets keep their promises! And in today’s world this is one of the greatest values there can be.
Mart Erik – head of Kinnistu OÜ
"Our cooperation with LignaMets started already 7 years ago when the timber.ee auctioneering environment started holding forest auctions. During this time, we have successfully held LignaMets’s auctions for cutting rights and immovables, and we have been happy to see LignaMets on the buyer's side as well as winners of auctions. LignaMets has been successful in both roles, therefore I can say that LignaMets is a very knowledgeable forest owner and always oriented at the best possible results. Our cooperation has always been smooth and has been very pleasant so far and successful in every way. It has been a pleasure cooperating with you!"
Wishing you successful transactions in the future, AS Timber
