    Can't speak for the masses, or the Mum/Dad investors, but I think thats a bit of a pointless phrase really. You can make money in most things, but as usual the basic rules still apply:

    (1) Understand the business or concept. What I found with the Forestry Industry is most companies blur the actual cost of the investment with moving target "future calls" etc. There are some who have kept it simple however.

    (2) Exit strategy. If you are buying units then make sure the company has a healthy secondary market for you to sell into if you need to.

    (3) Growth. With property and shares, you want to pick the suburbs or companies that are going to perform well. No different with forestry. Study the growth rates as these units will appreciate faster. Growth rates can vary from 5% to 60% p.a., so do your homework.

    Hope that helps a little.

    Investments in forests, ostrich farms, tulips, etc are historical proof that this is a good investment rule to follow.

    I think there are a few thousand people in Australia who wish they had never heard of Timbercorp or Great Southern.

    No income for 30 years. Lots of expenses including land holding costs. it is only for the rich with long horizons. Big holders in NZ are the NZ superfund and US pension funds. A few mums and dads through Greenplan and Roger Dick (based on tax deductions - probably wish they hadn't now as tree prices have dropped) and a few farmers on their steep (non farmable) land.

    Any thoughts on forestry ?

    Does anybody have any thought on forestry ? I'm thinking it's a cheaper way to start an investment. as far as i know many expenses are taxdeductable ? Does anybody know good companies to deal with or bad ones ? Anything one should look out for especially ?
