As an asset class, GMO predicts timber will have 6.5% return on their 7-year forecast. What is the best way to invest in Timber? Any ETF's? What are the pro's and con's to consider?Advanced thanks,
Plum Creek Timber is a timber REIT that is certainly worth a look.
plant a tree?BIP has timber assets, amongst other infrastructure type holdings.
There is an ETF with the symbol CUT, but I wouldn't recommend it. http://www.guggenheimfunds.com/etf/fund/cutThere are 4 timber REIT's - Plum Creek Timber (PCL) Potlatch (PCH), Rayonier (RYN) and Weyerhaeuser (WY). If you go to Seekingalpha.com and search Tom Kametz, you will find some very good articles he wrote on REIT's.:>) Norm
In my last post I meant to say some very good articles he wrote on timber in general and the 4 REIT's.
