Although investing in timberland is certainly not a new concept, developments in the energy markets and in the pension fund world have increased attention in this lucrative asset. It is currently estimated that large institutional investors have over forty-five billion dollars invested globally in timberland as part of their overall portfolios, and indications are for this trend to continue to accelerate.  In the US alone, Timber Investment Management Organizations (TIMOs, managing timberland portfolios for pension funds, university endowments, and high net worth individuals) reportedly manage over 23 million acres of forestland investments representing approximately 7% of total privately-owned timberland.

FORECON, Inc. provides tools, research, and on-the-ground experience to help investment managers better leverage their timberland portfolios.
