What are the benefits available in a Woodland Insurance policy?
Woodland Insurance Cover for Cross Liabilities.
Includes compensation for Court Attendance.
Woodland Insurance Cover for claimants’ costs, fees and expenses following a sudden, identifiable, unintended & unexpected pollution incident occurring at a specific time and place in its entirety.
Will a Woodland Insurance Policy cover any Liability for buildings that are on the land?
Yes, cover can be extended to include unoccupied buildings that are situated on the land. It is important to note that this does not include any material damage cover, but does include liability cover. For this extension, the building would also need to be in good condition and not accessible to the public.
Where is the potential Hazard from owning or being responsible for Woodland?
When there are members of the public on your land, there is always potential for an accident, no matter how well signposted, lit up or maintained and kept the land is. For woodland, claims normally arrive from:
- Members of the public tripping and falling.
- Trees or branches falling and causing damage to the public or motor vehicle (don’t forget cover includes third party property damage also).
When you think of the above, it becomes clear why a woodland insurance policy is a good idea.

What is the cost of a Woodland Insurance Policy?
It depends on a number of factors, including the size of the woodland, the size of the land, who accesses the land and whether are not there are any watercourses or unoccupied buildings on the land whether cover is required for liability from them or not. These are just some of the factors that influence premium costs and will be assessed by an underwriter. Having said that, it is not uncommon for woodland insurance policies to start from as little as under £100.00 including Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) & fees.
