Owners and operators of timber and farmlands are facing new challenges and opportunities related to the energy and environmental markets. We counsel clients where traditional harvesting meets growing new market opportunities.
As our clean energy economy evolves, the role of biomass and biofuels is increasing. From biomass fuel plantation rotations and wind farms to carbon credits / offsets we work with landowners on new business and project development and transactional due diligence. As working lands are being examined for energy project development, whether renewable, clean or traditional power generation and/or transmission, we can help you sort through and act on your options. Our team assists clients in the development and review of complex land, lease, equipment, operations, sales and finance agreements.
Timber and farmlands are more than real estate assets; they are generational and institutional legacies. We understand that changing to sustainable land management plans, enacting flexible conservation easements, undertaking new energy cropping or committing to a long-term carbon contract are major undertakings requiring pointed due diligence.
Thousands of hectares have benefited from our knowledge of energy and environmental market developers, vendors, stakeholders, regulators and investors – including some of the world’s largest renewable energy and carbon reforestation projects. We look forward to discussing how your land management ideas intersect emerging energy and environmental markets.
