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
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.
