Who Will Own the Forest? 13

September 12-14, 2017  (Starts at 5:00 PM September 12 – Ends at 2:40 PM September 14) 
World Forestry Center  Portland, Oregon    Click here for Timberland Investing Agenda

Institutional investors have been allocating part of their portfolios to timberland as they seek diversification, inflation protection, and potentially higher rates of return than the bond or equity markets.

The Who Will Own the Forest? conferences offer a wide range of perspectives on institutional timberland investing, both domestically and overseas.  We invite you to join our discussions as we address this maturing and evolving asset class, and examine the issues that will impact the demand for commercial timber, diversify values from forestland, and maximize returns to investors.

This 2½ day conference offers both networking and educational benefits, including continuing education credits for certified foresters, appraisers, attorneys, and CPAs.  Day One is focused North American issues, while Day Two covers the global and emerging markets landscape.

Continuing Education Credits:

  • Society of American Foresters
  • Oregon Real Estate Appraisers  10.0
  • Washington Real Estate Appraisers  13.5
  • Oregon State Bar
  • Oregon Certified Public Accountants  13.5
