Ethical timber plantation investments

Plantation forestry is the future for the world timber production. It is way more lucrative and (cost) efficient than exploiting natural forests in a sustainable way.

An investment in plantation forestry is interesting for various reasons. For instance, it is an excellent asset for the diversification of an investment portfolio, because:

  • Real returns can average 10%-15%.
  • It has a low correlation with returns from other assets.
  • It is a good hedge against inflation.
  • It is low risk as conventionally measured.

Timber prices tend to follow inflation and trees have the advantage that harvests can be delayed when timber prices are down. An additional advantage is that larger diameter trees are disproportionately more valuable than smaller ones.

Sicirec’s projects are specifically attractive because they add to poverty alleviation and biodiversity conservation. Furthermore, they have an excellent IRR upside due to early income from the sale of carbon credits and tree planting subsidy certificates.

Demand for timber is expected to increase as economies in Europe and in countries as China, India and the United States continue to grow.
