Timberland is an Excellent Investment...

Timberland is an excellent investment for part of your portfolio.  The value from timberland is arrived from:

1. Growth - This means to plant the best genetic seedlings available, use herbicide and weed control chemicals, fertilize, thin whenever a stand analysis recommends to, and clearcut when financially mature.

2. Sale of timber - When selling the timber, competitive bidding yields the highest return.

3. Leases - Minerals, hunting, and other types of leases add to the value.

4. Land Appreciation - Is not controlled by the owner but by the market. Landowners control numbers 1, 2, and 3 only, and in order to maximize income a Forestry Consultant is invaluable.

The future looks good for timber products as population increases. Timber is a long term investment and must be held for several years to maximize returns. There are risks involved like in any investment.

Intensive management produces the highest rate of return. This means following a program that determines financial maturity for each stand of timber, planting the best seedlings available, removing the competing vegetation, fertilizing, and thinning at the appropriate time.
