- Trees, I own a few hundred (might even be a few thousand) through a forestry management company. This makes me feel quite good as it's a 'green' investment, and at the moment it looks set to return about 9% p/a net (compounded). Although it is a commodity and will depend on the log prices at harvest time about 7 years from now. The most frustrating thing about this is, despite owning lots of pine, I still need to part with $20 or so when I go to Mitre 10 for a 2 metre length of 4x4.
Any advice on this? I have been thinking about a forestry investment - either shares or a whole small plot.
