European Forestry Investments
In addition to our tropical timber investments such as bamboo investments , GreenWorld are pleased to offer what we feel is a unique alternative investment in the fast growing and valuable hardwood from the Paulownia tree. As we have discussed, timber is an excellent inflation hedge that can protect your assets from the ravages of inflation.
Paulownia is one of the strongest hardwoods in the world and can be used for many purposes such as higher-end furniture such as cabinets, veneers, tables and other domestic items.
Due its strength and flexibility, it is also increasingly being used in more advanced applications such RV, wood shipping pallets for global trade, marine applications and even vehicle interiors such as trucks or trains. With your timber investment in Paulownia hardwood, you are investing in a fast growing wood which is increasingly being used worldwide. Any timber investments you consider should be part of a growing market, and Paulownia definitely qualifies.
One of the other factors that most attracted us to this timber investment was its location in the safe and advanced western country of Germany. When making global investments, choosing to invest in a country which governed by the rule of law makes your investment highly secure. The plantation is about one hour outside of Berlin, and is an excellent example of managed forestry investments in that it uses some of the most advanced cultivation techniques available in the world.
The way your Paulownia timber investment will work is as follows:
- The investor leases a plot on the Paulownia plantation in Germany. You receive title to all of the trees planted on that plot.
- The term for this timber investment is 12 years, and you are able to harvest your trees at any time you wish during those 12 years.
- The minimum investment starts at € 10,750/US$US$14,000 with a projected return of
€ 31,200/US$42,000 for a projected Return on investment (ROI) of 190%.
- The investment opportunity goes as high as € 85,460/US$112,000 with a projected return of
€ 312,000/US$410,000 for a total Return on Investment (ROI) of 265%.
