This week's featured TIMO: Greenwood Management | Timberland Investment | Scoop.it

Forestry investments have become a popular focus for both pension funds and institutional investors. In 2008, Greenwood Management ApS was unique in offering forestry investment products for smaller investors in Europe using the forestry unit model. Similar models have since been developed with great success in countries such as New Zealand.


By using this model, investors have access to “Direct ownership” as opposed to forestry fund shares or shares in a timber product company. This offers true diversification without the capital requirements investors will need to achieve the economy of scale important in a large forestry project.

Lots of companies talk about growth opportunities. GreenWood Resources takes a more active approach – we grow our own opportunities. We develop and manage sustainable, environmentally certified tree farm systems for investment purposes. Our high-yield, fast-growing tree farms – those we own as well as those we manage for clients – meet the growing worldwide demand for timber and renewable energy products. And our boutique "new forestry" funds combine our internal expertise with external capital to generate investment returns. As a bonus, our business is good for the environment and the communities in which we operate. And that means plenty of green to go around.
