Uruguay timber farms present an excellent investment opportunity given the country's global reputation, 15% annual growth in Uruguay timber exports since 2009 and new construction-driven demand in major North American markets.
FarmsUY is pleased to present this 1,500-acre timber farm 145 miles from Montevideo in the Department of Florida. Florida is a very important region of Uruguay in terms of agribusiness given its climate, topography and proximity to Montevideo. Major international paper companies and global hedge funds all own timber farms in Florida, and cattle operations are widespread and profitable.
This 1,500 acre timber farm and 308,000 acres (125,000 hectares) of farmland in Florida have been classified as agricultural land with “forestry priority soils.” In fact, Florida accounts for 12% of all land in Uruguay with “forestry priority soils.”
98,800 acres (40,0000 hectares) in Florida have already been planted with timber, primarily Eucalyptus Grandis and Eucalyptus Globulus. The majority of Florida timberlands are high density plantations with 450 to 500 trees per acre and relatively fast 10-year growth cycles to full maturity and harvest.
Revenue from timber production on this farm can be augmented with annual revenue from cattle grazing on the property, a smart strategy which enhances ROI and keeps the timberland clean. Interested investors have the option of locking in cash flow over 22 years by leasing the farm to a Uruguay paper company or contracting with a local company to manage the timber growth and harvest every ten years. The lease strategy is lower risk while the buy/manage/harvest approach produces superior ROI.
