The Timberland Asset: The Long Term Investment for the Bright Green Future
February 27th – March 1st
The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, FL
The conference, as always, will cover a wide array of timberland investment topics and will focus on achieving investment efficiency in a market-oriented system, among other things. Participants will learn to make the most prudent timberland investment decisions involving the process of purchasing, managing and divesting a tract of timberland.
Conferences attendees will include public and private pension funds, private investors, family offices, fund of funds, REITs, private consultants, large landowners, TIMOs, and forest product companies. This diverse attendance base offers participants the ability to learn about every facet of the timberland business and network with representatives from each of these various organizations.
Registration is open for what we believe will be one of the most important conferences yet, as the industry begins to strengthen and as more and more investment opportunities become available throughout the sector.
Past Conference Reviews
“The University of Georgia’s Center for Forest Business does a superb job attracting a diverse, relevant, and pragmatic group of speakers to its timberland investment conferences. Furthermore, these events attract a broad array of institutional investors, from the US and elsewhere, interested in the timberland asset class.”
-Chris Zinkhan – CEO, The Forestland Group
“TIR has been a supporter of the UGA timberland conferences over the years for a number of reasons. First, as a University, speaking engagements are granted based on the expectation that speakers will provide timely and informative educational materials for timberland investors – these conferences are not a series of sales pitches. As a consequence, the UGA conferences tend to be well attended and informative. Also, UGA conferences further the research and educational goals of the Warnell School of Forest Resources. As the leading Forest Finance university in the world, the research and educational programs produced by the university are critical. This mission is embraced by the timberland investment community and investors that are concerned about the long term strategic issues impacting the asset class. These conferences are a way for those professionals to network with industry leaders as well as their peers to learn about the latest developments in the industry.”
-Tom Johnson – Managing Director, Timberland Investment Resource
