Estate agent Savills has made a senior appointment to its rural, energy and projects team with the addition of director, James Adamson, who will be responsible for the firm’s forestry investment across the UK.

Mr Adamson, who will be based at Savills’ Perth office, is a Chartered Surveyor with extensive experience of forestry markets.

He was latterly an investment manager with Scottish Woodlands Ltd, specialising in the acquisition and valuation of commercial forests.

Philip Gready, head of Savills Rural, said: “We are delighted to have James on board. His knowledge of the forestry market expands our offering to those investment clients who are looking for a longer-term, tax-efficient capital option, at a time when there is good confidence in the sector.”

Mr Adamson said: “Forestry is a unique and often overlooked asset, with considerable potential for a wide range of investors. This department is a natural progression of the wide range of rural services offered by Savills across the UK and beyond, and I look forward to working with colleagues to diversify our clients’ investment portfolios.”
