Forestry is in our opinion one of the greatest investment opportunities available today. The use of fast growing hardwoods provides a faster exit route for investors than is achievable with traditional growing methods.
There are NO TAX implications. It is a market which is becoming ever more important with the energy industry quickly moving away from the use of fossil fuels toward cleaner production by using biomass fuels.
Fast Growing Forestry
Investment in timber has frequently been ignored in favour of traditional financial products such as pensions, saving plans etc, when records show clearly that appropriate forestry investments are safer, less volatile and offer a more lucrative return, with the added bonus of no tax implications whatsoever. The main difference from financial investment options is the total absence of any smooth talking sales people and real tangible, high performing products which can be seen and monitored in Europe.

The population of our planet is constantly increasing, together with the demand for more and more timber products for construction, housing, alternative energy, paper, and much more. All this against a background of illegal logging, fewer, smaller forests, only a tiny percentage of which are planted and sustained by humans.
To begin to resist climate change and supply the rapidly increasing demand, massive forest plantations of a scale never seen before are required worldwide. As a result demand will continue to exceed supply, thus increasing prices and giving high returns for savvy investors.
