We will explain the method and procedure to those who are considering entrusting forest management to Morisho.
(It's a little long, but I hope you'll read it to the end)

The same procedure applies to those who wish to sell or dispose of forests.
* I'm really sorry, but please understand that if the rights relationship is complicated, or if the area is too small, we may refuse the survey for forests where it is difficult to go to the site survey.

● I want to entrust forest management to Morisho ● There is no use or merit for the forest I own ● I have inherited the forest but have never seen it ● I sold it because it is difficult to maintain and manage the forest Under consideration ● Mr. Yamamori, who is asking for management, is elderly.

The above people are eligible.

Then, in fact, <I want to ask for forest management, I want to sell the forest, I want to dispose of it>
If so, where should I consult?

⇒Please contact Morisho


It seems that many people first consult with real estate agents, banks, tax accountants, and other professionals involved in the sale of forests. (Our company also often hears stories about mountains from real estate agents.) Real estate and forests seem to be similar, but the knowledge required for transactions is different, so we receive accurate advice on sales procedures, boundary formulation, tax, etc. I think it is difficult to obtain an assessment result that is commensurate with the value of the forest.

In addition, since the boundary line of the forest is distinguished by the boundary stake, the type and ridge of the standing tree, the passage of the swamp and the water, it is difficult for an amateur to distinguish, and if the boundary line is not clear even by looking at the register or the official map, the boundary line of the adjacent land Coordination with the owner is required.

It depends on the conditions of the forest, but when I asked the vendor to sell the forest and asked the vendor to assess it, it seems that the market price of the standing trees in the forest is 0 in many cases. If you are a trader who does not have an appropriate logging / export method or a timber sales route, it is natural that the standing trees in the forest will be assessed as 0.

It will be difficult for a vendor who does not have knowledge of forests to deal with borderline and owner issues and to give a rating that is commensurate with the value of forests. That is also one of the reasons why the number of abandoned forests is increasing.

After all, I think that it is the best to know how to make the best use of the forest by consulting with a forest professional about the forest.
<At Morisho, we will accurately see the value of the entire forest, taking into consideration the current conditions of the forest, conditions such as roads, the type and age of standing trees, and the current market conditions.>

●● Please manage the forest ・ Flow and procedure of sale ●●

The flow and procedure for selling a forest are as follows.

(1) Prepare a "registered copy" or "property tax notice" of the forest (2) Request a site survey (current state of the forest / standing tree price) (3) Conclude a forest management and sales contract. Therefore

We will create a "Morisho Consignment Forest Chart". * We will also give it to everyone.

It's not a family doctor, but a family Forester.
(Photos, standing tree information, amount of trees, contact roads, presence of forest roads, prices, etc.)

●● Then, I will explain the specific flow in order. ●●

1. Prepare a copy of the register or a notice of property tax

If you wish to sell the forest, a field survey is required. First of all, please prepare a " register copy " or " property tax notice " of the target forest.

The copy of the register contains the lot number such as the address, the current owner, and the lots such as "forest", "wilderness", and "mixed land", which can be obtained from the Legal Affairs Bureau of each prefecture. Property tax notices are sent annually to forest owners.

2. By the time you request a site survey

When estimating a forest, first check the information about the owner, the boundary with the neighboring land, and the relationship of rights.
When actually investigating, it is often the case that the target forest is a shared name with others, or the drawings are old and the boundaries are not clear. In this case, it is necessary to conduct interviews with co-owners, formulate boundaries, and coordinate with neighboring land owners. We are also making adjustments through the Uda City Boundary Clarification Project, so please feel free to leave it to us.

If there is no problem here, move on to the forest estimate. For forest land, consider the texture and area, road contact conditions, slopes, etc., and for standing trees, consider the tree species, age, care status, time required for logging and export, etc., and estimate with reference to the timber price in the market. to hold.

Finally, add up the assessed amounts of land and standing trees to calculate a rough forest price. The market price of forests varies from 100 to 5,000 yen per square meter depending on the type of forest. Woodlands in the hinterland of mountain villages are cheaper, and higher in the woodlands with roads and in the suburbs of the city.

Forests have a vast area, and in some cases, the values measured more than 100 years ago remain as they are, and there is often a discrepancy between the registered area and the actual area.

When selling, we will either use the "public book transaction" that uses the area listed in the register as it is, or the "actual measurement transaction" that determines the land area by actual measurement.

3. 3. Estimate with forest accompaniment or independent survey

Enter the forest and check the current situation, the type of standing trees, the growth situation, thinning, and the presence or absence of weeding. Also, check the management status of fallen trees due to wind and snow damage and forest roads.

● The value of forests cannot be accurately determined from the information and drawings in the register.

It is important to actually enter the site and walk in the forest to check the current situation.

Finally, we will create a "Morisho Forest Chart" based on the results of the field survey, and work with us to think about how to manage and harvest the owner's forest in the future.

Excuse me for the long sentence. Even in the case of forest management, I think that our proposals are different for each forest. Currently, the value of mountains and the value of standing trees are extremely low, but they are still valuable resources. Let's work together to create a forest that will last for the next 100 years.

Inquiries to Morisho
I would like all media related people from here as well.

​Thank you for your inquiry! * As a general rule, we will contact you by phone or email on the same day or the next day. We look forward to working with you in the future.
