Timberland Investors

Large-scale private ownership of forestlands in the United States has seen radical change in the last twenty years. Timberland Investment Management Organizations (TIMOs) and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) currently own over 18 million acres of forestland.  Mellette Forestry Group helps investors, both large and small, effectively manage their timber and non-timber resources and creates forest management plans uniquely designed to each client's needs.  Our forest management plans are specifically tailored to each property's unique biological habitat and diversity.

Mellette Forestry Group helps investors seek competitive returns while maintaining the productive capacity of the forest. Our company helps with surveying and mapping, valuation of land and timber, wildlife management, and valuation of conservation easements. Mellette Forestry Group serves in a fiduciary relationship with investors whose long-term objectives include achieving competitive investment returns. We manage investors' properties combining sustainable forestry principles with ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration, wetlands mitigation, conservation easements, and water quality.
