Long-term contracts

Long-term contracts are typically five-year contracts. They are offered as standing or roadside sales. Long-term contracts are tendered at a set volume, spread equally over the contract term. Price is typically revised annually on roadside contracts and on a lot-by-lot basis on standing contracts.

There are no plans to offer any further long-term contracts at present. We will continue to monitor and review the situation and will advertise any opportunities for further contracts should the need for more arise.

Sales plan 2023-24

The sales plan 2022 - 23 shows how we will allocate our total yearly volume production between the four online sales events. The volumes we plan to market at each sale event are also split between the direct production of round timber products and standing sales.
