“Who Will Own the Forest? 8” September 18-20, 2012
It is estimated that institutional investors now own more than 25 million acres of U.S. forests, worth more than US$30 billion. Investors are allocating part of their portfolios to forestland as they seek diversification, inflation protection, and potentially higher rates of return than the bond or equity markets.
The evolving nature of this unique asset class, and its potential for protecting both income and conservation values, is the subject of our annual “Who Will Own the Forest?” conference series. Speakers discuss and debate issues pertaining to the economy, forestland valuations, investing overseas, regulatory, tax and lending drivers, and emerging values such as carbon, biomass, and environmental credits. This 2½ day conference offers both networking and educational benefits, including continuing education credits for certified foresters, appraisers, attorneys, and CPAs.
