There is no guarantee that annual distributions will be made. Whether or not there is a distribution and/or the amount of any annual distribution will depend largely on the level of harvesting carried out and the value of the timber harvested. The strategy will be to balance the level of distribution against the objective of providing tax free capital appreciation. Investors should not plan or invest on the basis that distributions will be made. The forest portfolio currently comprises 15,397 hectares (38,047 acres) over 44 properties across Scotland, Wales and England.
