The Who Will Own the Forest? 10 conference is now full and registration is closed.
Since vertically integrated forestry firms began to divest themselves of forest assets, and institutional and high net worth investors bought up these forestlands through TIMOs and REITs, it is estimated that the timberland investment arena is currently worth over $50 billion. The investable universe is likely three times as large, with investors allocating part of their portfolios to forestland as they seek diversification, inflation protection, and potentially higher rates of return than the bond or equity markets.
2014 is our 10th Who Will Own the Forest? conference focusing on timberland investing, both domestically and overseas.
