Forestry Insurance

We can cover high value plant and machinery unique to your sector under a single bespoke policy, meaning your liability and equipment can be covered with same insurer and policy wording.

We take time to understand the needs of each client to ensure we are offering the best forestry insurance cover at a competitive price – first time.

Public Liability is the core cover included in every policy. Due to the potential for large claims our standard limit of cover is £5m, although this can be increased to £10m. Public Liability provides cover for accidental bodily injury to members of the public and their property for which you are legally liable. For example, a falling branch from a tree which you are working on injuring a member of the public or damaging their property.

Although Employers Liability is an optional cover it is a legal requirement in the UK if you have employees working for you under a contract of service. The definition of employees is wide, including volunteers, labour only subcontractors, apprentices, trainees and persons undergoing work experience. Our standard limit of cover is £10m. Employers Liability provides cover for your employees who may be injured at work due to your negligence, from things like falling trees or injury sustained operating tools or plant.

Optional cover is available for your tools, equipment, and high value plant, from chainsaws and hand tools to harvesters and forwarders. We can also provide cover for hired in equipment which you are legally liable for. You also have the option to include cover for any other business equipment, such as laptop computers and business stock. Our policy reinstates your owned property based on the market value at the time of damage or loss, however new for old cover can be offered for electronic business equipment.

Available for business owners and employees, this optional cover pays up to £20,000 in the event of accidental bodily injury, such as loss of a finger or limb (as defined in the policy wording), and a weekly benefit of £250 or £400 in the event of injury which temporarily forces you out of work such as a broken leg. This is 24 hour cover and applies if an injury occurs at work or off site such as a football game.

Legal Expenses is included in every policy and covers any costs and expenses in respect of legal proceedings brought against you/your business including action under the Health and Safety at Work Act and Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act.

Optional cover is available for your tools, equipment, and high value plant, from chainsaws and hand tools to harvesters and forwarders. We can also provide cover for hired in equipment which you are legally liable for. You also have the option to include cover for any other business equipment, such as laptop computers and business stock. Our policy reinstates your owned property based on the market value at the time of damage or loss, however new for old cover can be offered for electronic business equipment.
