Does Money Grow on Trees?

I recently celebrated 26 years working for my family’s business. In that time, we have seen a lot of changes with technology within the timber industry from chain saws to highly mechanized, computerized equipment that run like a PlayStation game.

One thing that hasn’t changed is that timber continues to be a sustainable, renewable investment. Why? Well, my Dad, Shelby Taylor, founder of Shelby Taylor Trucking, always says that trees show up for work, they’re never late and they don’t ask to borrow money. The only things you have to worry about are natural disasters, such as tornadoes or ice storms. Instead of investing in Wall Street, you can invest in land with trees and actually see where your money is going. You can also enjoy your land by hunting or hiking.

We, as timber investors, are considered tree farmers. For every pine tree we remove, we replant three new ones in its place. As far as the investment side, it is a long-term investment, but you begin to recoup your money at 14 years, 20 years and 25 years. And, after all those years, the land still belongs to you, which you can replant for future generations.

Here are some links to further help you understand how investing in timber can grow your family's future:
