The TreeCents story

We developed TreeCents timber investment analysis software programs after years of observing that private forest owners and forestry consultants rarely calculated timber project financial returns. Before TreeCents, financial analyses were either too simplistic to be reliable, or too complex and too intimidating to be intelligible. Other software can cost more and be forbiddingly user-UNfriendly.

TreeCents puts financial analysis directly into the hands of individual private forest owners so they have the power to make informed choices. We believe that if timber investment analyses could become: pretty--easy--cheap--reliable, then forest owners and consultants will do these calculations and use the results to make better financial decisions that increase private forestry returns.

Private forestry can still be profitable, even when forest owners have higher priorities than money. Financially well-informed timber choices will complement your forest stewardship objectives of long-run sustainable natural beauty, wildlife habitat, ecosystem conservation and recreation.  

When the new versions come out, you could make TreeCents your basic resource for financially sound private timber investment decisions. Check out our  TreeCents link button to the left. It opens up a whole world of useful private timber investment insights.
