Mirvac to sell forestry land

Mirvac to sell forestry land | Adelaide Real Estate News | Scoop.it

MIRVAC Group is selling one of the last of its legacy funds management assets – more than 20,000 hectares of forestry land held by Australian Sustainable Forestry Investors.

 

The Mirvac managed fund bought the land from the managed investment scheme Timbercorp in 2004. When Timbercorp collapsed, the fund emerged as its biggest single landlord, The Australian Financial Review reports.

 

At June 30, 2012, Australian Sustainable Forestry Investors had three institutional investors, one of which was Mirvac itself, and funds under management of $57 million.

 

The Mirvac forestry portfolio consists of 68 parcels of blue gum plantation and farming land – 20,657 ha all up – in the Green Triangle of Victoria and South Australia and in south-west Western Australia.

***

Major investors like the Future Fund, the Swedish pension fund Forsta AP-fonden and the Boston-based Hancock Timber Resource Group have bought Australian timberland since the collapse of the managed investment trust boom.

***

The Mirvac portfolio is for sale in whole or parts with expressions of interest to close on June 13.

 

Most properties are leased to Australian Bluegum Plantations, but some of the trees have been harvested and the agreements with ABP terminated.

ABP was created by the US-based Global Forest Partners LP in 2009 to buy and manage blue gum plantations on land that now has more than 90,000 ha of trees.
