Integrated Forest Management
We deliver timberland investment management through a vertically-integrated system.
Linked to our belief in the benefits of active management is our conviction that effective active management only occurs when all-important components of timberland management are delivered by our employees. We believe that value is created throughout the delivery system – from the head of operations to every forester – those responsible for making operational decisions and insuring decisions are properly executed. Performing these services with RMS employees allows us to invest in training and tools and to clearly communicate management objectives. As employees, and in many cases owners, our ability to share financially in the company and our client’s success produces alignment of interests not found in other organizations.
RMS has assembled a global organization with exceptional breadth and depth of talent in timberland acquisitions and dispositions, forest operations, resource planning, portfolio management and client accounting and reporting. With over 155 employees, we not only offer a wealth of broad operational experience but are also able to provide specialized expertise in forest growth and yield, silvicultural technology, harvest optimization and forest finance. These varied disciplines are integrated through our portfolio management team. The team is responsible for blending the biological and financial characteristics of timberlands to maximize long-term returns and meet fund investment objectives. Long-term plans, annual budgets and ongoing property performance analysis are achieved through a close working relationship with our operations, accounting and resource planning groups.
