Our approach and the talents and commitment of our people, enable RMS to identify and create linkages and synergies up and down the timberland investment value chain.

This empowers us to make better, faster and more collaborative decisions about how to optimize the performance of our investors’ forest assets.

Our forestry expertise, combined with an organizational structure that supports collaborative decision making, allows RMS to operate with a high degree of optionality.  This empowers us to shape and adjust our investment and asset management efforts in response to our investors’ evolving risk and return needs.

Ultimately, RMS’ team approach and the deep and varied capabilities of our people are what define the unique brand of investment – focused forestry that we practice on behalf of our investors.
