If you are looking for ways to expand and diversify your investment portfolio, it is time to think beyond the latest stock tip or bond offering. Investing in wooded land and timber services can help you realize an excellent return on your investment while being socially responsible.
Reasons to Invest in Forestry and Timber Management Services
While every investor is looking for their money to make as much as it can for them, putting your money in wooded land offers a number of additional benefits.
- It's good for the environment. Maintaining wooded land helps the environment in a variety of ways, such as preventing erosion and improving air quality by filtering out greenhouse gases.
- It's not subject to most market forces. Trees and timber are virtually recession proof. Despite possible civil unrest, stock market downturns, and foreclosures, trees will continue to grow and have value.
- It helps prevent urban sprawl. By investing in forestry and wooded land, you are helping keep a portion of America's woodlands out of the hands of developers. In doing so, you can prevent our limited natural resources from being turned into gas stations, parking lots, or drug stores.
- It delivers a better-than-average return. Of course, all the social responsibility in the world doesn't help sell an investment that doesn't offer a reasonable return. Historically, investing in forestry has generated double-digits returns, better than the Dow returns most years.
