11/12/2020 - Introducing World Forest Network, an information exchange platform to connect impact forestland investors with qualified projects.

We are targeting owner-operated, impact investing forestry projects focused on sustainability and social benefits. These are usually native woods oriented, but not exclusive of well managed plantation forests and/or agriculture. We are in the process of procuring candidate projects and like minded investors. We are open to introductions. This is an emerging marketplace and information is usually preliminary, so please contact us for initial communication.
