Why lumber is worth a look in tough markets

Why we’re excited about lumber

Sustainable lumber is one of the most exciting yet widely ignored investment opportunities available today. Despite short term market fluctuations, lumber can be a great hedge against inflation and give you the satisfaction of investing in a real asset that historically gets more valuable over time.

With lumber markets predicted to continue to rise over the long term, and supplies of many commonly used hardwoods decreasing, there is huge potential to introduce a new, green hardwood to U.S. consumers.

Timber demand is set to quadruple by 2050
30% of tree species are at risk of extinction
U.S. loses 36 million bf of wood every year

"It is sometimes said that trees don’t read The Wall Street Journal, and so even in tough times, trees grow, compounding in size and value. This is why big institutional investors such as university endowments and pension funds make timber investment allocations in their giant portfolios." - Cabot Wealth

"There are many risks associated with any investment, including World Tree's Eco-Tree Program. The investment is a long-term, illiquid investment and there's no guarantee of success. With that in mind, I am impressed by how the World Tree team has designed the Eco-Tree Program to mitigate risks and structured it so that individual investors can participate with the potential for meaningful upside."

"Personally, I was excited to have the opportunity and invested myself because I believe in the team, the opportunity, and the mission. I view the Eco-Tree Program as an interesting inflation hedge and method to diversify my portfolio while making a positive impact for farmers and the planet. I am glad to have the opportunity to work with the team at World Tree and proud to be an Eco-Tree Program investor."
