Growing pine trees is a conservative, tangible place to invest. Insurance and retirement funds have been placing a portion of their portfolio in growing timberlands for decades. Now you have a chance to participate in this type investment at an affordable level. With the current investment environment of uncertainty and misrepresentation, it is very reassuring to have an investment that you can see and control.
It is really very simple. Trees grow. They grow 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Tree growing is a very mature industry and it is very well documented and defined. There are several excellent web sites that explain every aspect of tree growing. The department of forestry has a site in each state; in Virginia it is www.dof.state.va.us and in North Carolina it is www.dfr.state.nc.us. From there you can link to several sites such as Virginia Tech, www.ext.vt.edu/ and the North Carolina State site, www.ces.ncsu.edu/nreos/forest.
The first reaction of most people is to say, “I don’t have 20-25 years to watch trees grow.” It all depends on when you need the return. If you need a return for children’s college in 10 years, you buy timberland with 10 to 15 year old trees, simple.
And maybe the best part is you can use your investment for recreation. Hiking, fishing, hunting, riding ATV’s, all sorts of outdoor, family activities.
