  • 1. FRA welcomes Timber Investment Endorsement FRA has welcomed a recent endorsement of timber and forestry investment from Adam Waldman of GreenWorld, through an article written for Tecnorati.com.Bainbridge Island, WA, December 07, 2012 - Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has welcomed arecent endorsement of timber and forestry investment from Adam Waldman of GreenWorld,through an article written for Tecnorati.com. He points out that, while many people may not havethought about timber as an asset class option before, institutional investors are starting to see thepotential in timber and individual investors should too.Mr Waldman gives the example of how Harvard University is investing large amounts into forestryand timber, along with a major Russian and Chinese joint venture, which has recently decided toinvest $200 million in the asset class.FRA, a research and analysis organisation specialising in timber investment, has welcomed thearticle and backs Mr Waldman’s claims that forestry investment can provide a very effective hedgeagainst inflation. He even points out that timber can act as a more affordable hedge than preciousmetals as timber prices follow general price trends, in much the same way as gold and silver.As well as this benefit, he also points out the returns on timber investment have been very goodover the past decade, outperforming stocks and shares returns by a considerable margin. FRA’sanalysis partner, Peter Collins, added that forestry also provides a very good means of diversifyinga portfolio against risk at a time when the stock market remains extremely volatile.“If your trees reach maturity but timber prices aren’t that great, you can simply leave themgrowing and watch your asset gain value in front of your eyes, ready for a market upturn,” statedMr Collins, In this way, timber investment is a relatively risk-averse investment, claims FRA.FRA supports a number of forestry investment schemes all over the world, including GreenwoodManagement’s sustainable plantations in Brazil. These offer individuals the chance to invest intheir own section of timberland for as little as $15,000.Contact:Peter CollinsForestry Research Associates620 Vineyard LaneBainbridge Island, WA 98110(206) 316 8394info@forestry-research.comhttp://www.forestry-research.com ###
