Abstract: Forestry can be classed an as alternative investment, compared with other classifications such as shares, commercial property or bonds. Alternative investments as a category, and certainly individual forest investments, have opportunity for improved revenues or outcomes from the application of skilled management practices. Conversely, the lack of specific competency in forest and investment management will greatly increase investment risk. Investors considering forestry as an investment need to be aware of several features that distinguish it from other investment options. This paper discusses plantation forest investment in radiata pine.
