Group Forestry Insurance Scheme

Group Forest Insurance Scheme

Western Forestry Co-op administers a low cost Group Forestry Insurance Scheme for forest owners.

Because of this, we are delighted to say that last year we greatly improved our forestry insurance scheme, by securing better cover for your forestry and also providing a discounted renewal premium. Possibly the only insurance that provided a discounted premium last year.

Our forestry insurance scheme provides covers for fire, lightning, explosion, replanting costs, fire brigade cover.
