Company set-up and administration
Usually, we establish a limited company in the Baltic State where you wish to invest. Your new limited company will then buy forest properties to the extend defined be your investment amount. We will then manage your forests and administrate your investment from our local Baltic offices.
Property analysis and cash-flow projections
Your forest properties consist of different stands containing different tree species in different ages and qualities. Some of the stands are mature and can be harvested at any time. Other stands are young and you can project when it will be ready for harvesting and what value it will have.
This makes us able to make a full analysis of your entire property with projections on how the cash-flow will be in the coming years.
