Natural investment characteristics of timberland
Green Belt is Ireland's largest private group, established in 1982. Our expertise lies within our employees and professional foresters located across the country, all supported by our technical support team from Virginia, County Cavan.

For semi mature forestry, it can be difficault to accurately assess the forest in totality pre thinning. By utilising drone technology, we can stratify the forest and focus our inspection paths and routes for detailed measurement. This data will be gathered and processed to deliver up to date information and allow accurate projections for timber harvesting and revenues.
Similarly, greeen land offers attractive returns. There is a grant which coveres establishment of the forestry and a premium payable annually for 15 years, to all qualified applicants.
Timber earnings are tax free* and represent a great hedge versus inflation as well as something tangible, secure and growing, even in the worst financial climates.
Green Belt Ltd has proven its ability to build a pipeline of investment opportunities in timberland and related activities. A key differentiator of the Green Belt model is that it identifies off market land and timberland investment opportunities.
Green Belt has brought an international dimension to forestry investment with the establishment of high-value tropical hardwood plantations in Panama, since 2005. Investors have the opportunity to buy shares in special-purpose companies designed to purchase and establish these teak plantations.
