Good Ecuador Timber Investing

Natural Resources

One reason I visit Ecuador again and again is to tromp through woods and look at good Ecuador timber investing in the form of forest mitigation programs that allow investors to buy five acres of primary forest to put into reserve. They gain the right to log two trees off one additional acre. This does not seem like much but each tree brings in about $1,100. The profit numbers I have seen are phenomenal.

Good Ecuador Timber Investing Note

Here is what a business associate down there wrote to me.

"We have found an excellent opportunity in sustainable logging. My research has found good markets for the lumber. We finished the "plan de manejo" of the land and we will be the first company in Ecuador to obtain a permission to do a sustainable harvesting according to the new legislation.

My initial idea is to buy 24.500 acres for total protection at about $120 per acre. This we put in total reserve, This allows us to log 5000 additional acres of forest in an area where we believe a sustainable harvesting is possible. and use the income to pay back our cost of reserving the other land.

We are close to negotiating a deal with Ecuadorian exporters and European importers of lumber and the prices on lumber are the same, or even higher than what we estimated earlier. So we still believe it is an excellent investment. "

The logs are harvested by horse or oxen, so that the forests are not ruined. There is an abundant market for the wood.

Sustainable forestry is here and good Ecuador timber investing is here to stay. Home Depot (bless their souls) I am told have announced they will no longer sell wood that comes from clear cut forests. We are in an era where values will become more important than value. Consumers will grow more willing to pay more for wood that has been forested in a sustainable way and the recreational value of the land left will rise as well. This is an idea whose time has come and I look forward to helping you find ways to cash in on this harvest as we help restore balance in our environment.
