Investing in forests in inflationary times?
Wood is found in many consumer products.
For energy, of course (wood is the number one renewable resource in France to produce energy), increasingly in construction, particularly for sequestering carbon, but also in numerous equipment items, in textiles and in all products where it replaces the use of plastic. 80% of a forest's value lies in wood. As such, although this is no guarantee of future performance, we have historically observed that investing in forests enables forest investors to offset inflation.
