Forestry Finance

Providing the finance to help your forestry business grow

We have a strong heritage in the forestry sector and understand how important it is for businesses to have reliable and up-to-date equipment. Without the tools you need, business processes can quickly grind to a halt and stall your growth plans.

But acquiring the right machinery can be expensive, especially when purchasing outright. With forestry finance from Hitachi Capital, we can provide you with a funding solution to facilitate activities such as short rotation, reforestation and sustainable forestry management.

We allow you to acquire the asset you need for your business and spread the cost over a simple monthly repayment plan which is manageable and tax efficient. This lets your business maintain a steady cash flow and prevents the large outgoing that can occur with an outright purchase.

From wheeled harvesters and harvester heads to forwarders and skidders, we can help you fund a diverse range of forestry assets which will allow you to take the next step in growing your business.

We can help fund assets from £5,000 to £500,000 with repayment terms of two to five years. We’ll work with you to find a forestry equipment finance solution that works for the needs of your business.

  • Fast payments help you get your new asset working for your business
  • Spread the cost of acquiring an asset and take control of your cash flow

Case studies

Enterprise Finance Guarantee

“Hitachi Capital Business Finance helped secure funding under the Enterprise Finance Guarantee for a limited company that had just registered in August 2017. It would have been extremely difficult for the customer to access finance without the EFG. They turned the deal around quickly and everyone’s happy.”

John Hurst, Intermediary

Dash Components

"Hitachi Capital Business Finance provided a brilliant service because everything was done online and very transparent. I was particularly impressed with their customer service and it was Hitachi’s response time that stood out the most, I will definitely be coming back to finance future purchases.”
