FRA urges Investors to seek out RISI Forestry Industry Report

FRA is urging those interested in alternative investments to get hold of a copy of the new RISI Global Tree Farm Economics Review.

PRLog - Mar. 1, 2012 - Seattle, United States -- Forestry Research Associates (FRA) is urging those interested in alternative investments to get hold of a copy of the new RISI Global Tree Farm Economics Review.

The review is a comprehensive look at the market for investing in sustainable plantation projects and other timber investment schemes all over the world.

The report looks at the various trends, economic and political factors that could impact the industry and investment returns for those with money in the industry.

FRA, which is a research and analysis consultancy, was keen to highlight the reports findings regarding China’s use of timber imports. The report confirms that China’s timber demand has increased in recent years and shows that the timber supply deficit in the country increased by 30 per cent in 2011 to 152 million cubic metres.

The figures show that China’s import of pulp, lumber, logs and woodchip reached record level last year.

“These figures are bound to cheer timber investors as they show that China’s demand for timber is ongoing and should provide a strong market for timber exports,” explained FRA’s analysis partner, Peter Collins.

The reports also reviewed the major timber producing countries of the world in terms of their performance for timber investors and also their general outlook. The report’s co-author, Robert Flynn stated, “The Review is specific enough to be useful, but broad enough to cover the very wide range of geographic and product variations in type of timber investment projects.”

The report also outlines the benefits and risks involved with timber investment in each of the included countries. FRA supports forestry investment schemes such as the sustainable plantation schemes run by Greenwood Management in Brazil, which help to reduce the pressure on native trees to provide charcoal and other timber products.

“We believe that investing in timber is a good bet in view of the growing demand for wood products in emerging economies,“ concluded Mr Collins.
