Forestry for Private Landowners

Although investing in timberland is certainly not a new concept, savvy investors realize that the trees in their own backyard serve as a good alternative investment, or compliment to the other investments. Forestry for private landowners is just wise management. You may have many reasons to reconsider your timberland from an investment point-of-view.  First, there is the value appreciation of both the timber and the land components. Then there are also periodic cash returns from the sale of timber and land. and finally, there is the potential for annual lease income from other natural resources and recreation.

Investing in timberland offers a good means of portfolio diversification and as a hedge against inflation. Timberland is also a “hard” (physical) asset with a limited supply. There is a great deal of satisfaction in owning undeveloped land with numerous outdoor opportunities including hiking, camping, hunting, fishing and jogging. There are also income and estate tax advantages to owning real estate.

Timberland investments offer many opportunities for appreciation in value. FORECON’s professional foresters help private landowners realize superior investment returns through the life of their ownership.

To Our FORECON Clients/Friends

No need to tell you we are living in some surreal times right now. The affects of the COVID-19 virus have had impacts on all of us in a variety of ways.  Many are homebound, everyone is (or should be) practicing “social distancing”, and we are being informed 24/7 with updates on the infection rate, where the “hotspots” are, and the need for personal protection equipment for our fantastic doctors, nurses, and health care workers who in many cases are putting their personal well-being aside for the good of us all.
