Growth in commercial forestry

Commercial forestry is a very attractive investment increasingly for family offices and high net worth individuals as well as institutional investors who have been enjoying allocating capital to the differentiated and illiquid timber asset class.

The S&P Global Timber & Forestry Index (which includes 25 public forestry companies) has increased 11% over the past year. The IPD Forestry Index shows that a forest typically returns 18.4% per annum over the last 10 years.

Another attraction is that there is no income or corporation tax on the income made from the timber and inheritance tax exempt after two years.
