Wise Investors are Buying Timberland, What are You Investing In?

  Forest land is taking the lead away from farmland which has been at a historic high for the past few years.
Largely due to Recent Stock Market volatility many are looking to diversify their investment portfolios.
Gaining periodic cash flows from Timber Thinnings and  Harvests along with alternative products from the land like recreational leases, oil and mining.

  The smart investors like these properties because they are:
    1. A steady investment
    2. Very Tangible, they can see the asset, rather than a digital dollar in the stock market.
      Many even visit their land investments, build recreation homes, hunt, fish, hike.
    3. Hedge against long term inflation

  However these are not always a good investment for the uneducated and having the right Forester working with you every step of the way is essential.
  There are many variables in Forest land Investments including;
    Location of the Forest
    Availability of  product markets
    Age of the trees
    Condition of the trees
    Types/Species of trees
    Local government regulations
    Tax implications
    Amount of involvement the investor wants to commit to and how much they want to have their Forester handle.

  Most advisers recommend that it is best to be prepared for a long term steady investment rather than a quick buck type of investment.
Though we have had many of quick return opportunities at Woodland Management Service, they are difficult to find and cannot be relied upon for a steady long term investment.

When you are ready to explore opportunities in forest land, give us a call at Woodland Management Service and Woodland Real Estate.

Hi Sally - I've been curious about timberland for many years, I know a couple of people who have timberland in Arkansas and Mississippi and they seem to be doing ok with their investments. Keep up the good work educating us city folks.
