Capturing the true value of forests

Our investment analysis services advise our clients on how to capture the real value of forests, regardless of the applied business model, be it in timber or tonnes of carbon.

Forests as an investment asset class is not a new concept. There are many preferable characteristics, providing resilience and diversity to any investment portfolio. However, putting a value on forests is much trickier than for most other real assets. Forests are biological assets whose physical quantity is in constant flow as a result of natural growth dynamics and applied management activities. Importantly, this physical quantity usually serves as the basis for the valuation of a forest.

Forests are becoming an increasingly attractive asset class to invest in, for their timber-related value and for their natural capability to capture carbon from the atmosphere and store it in the forest biomass. This is opening completely new ways for the analysis of forests as investments and the applicable business models, which can now take carbon offsetting and carbon crediting into consideration.
