New eTimber Sales

Forestry England will shortly be introducing a new sales platform “eTimber Sales” for marketing and sale of our timber contracts.

We intend to go live with our new system by the end of May 2023.

The July 2023 national tender will be the first major sale run on this platform, although we will run some smaller local sales and LTC negotiations in the new system to ensure all functionality is in place.

More information is available in our March 2023 Customer Update.


Forestry England new timber contracts

From January 2020 Forestry England are using two new timber sales contracts.  One is for the sale of standing trees and other products that are to be harvested by the purchaser, the other is for the sale of forest products that Forestry England harvests and sells directly from the forest. This does not affect any existing contracts sold before 9 January 2020.

The new contracts incorporate various documents and information which describe certain procedures that govern how the contracts and the work involved are to be conducted. The terms and conditions for both new contract types and the incorporated documents and information are detailed below.
