Investments in timberland generally work as follows:
With capital from qualified investors, RMS uses its 65 years of experience to carefully underwrite and purchase timberland in one or more target regions around the world. We then manage those lands in an environmentally responsible manner, conduct periodic harvests, and replant trees to generate cash flow returns and long term value for our investors. We supplement timber returns with additional value from a variety of non-timber sources, including recreational leases, ecosystem services and opportunistic property sales.
As a fiduciary, RMS is entrusted with the care of our investors’ assets. We take this duty very seriously and strive to provide full and fair disclosure of relevant information and recommendations that are suitable and achievable. A robust commitment to compliance assures our investors that appropriate business procedures are in place and strictly followed with regard to their timberland investments.
RMS manages sustainable timberland assets in some of the most attractive regions of the world, from the southern U.S. to Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, and China. Our competitive advantage lies in RMS’ depth of talented people, our durability and experience, and our entrepreneurial culture.
