Roseburg Resources Co. has acquired approximately 158,000 acres of investment-grade timberland in the southeastern United States from Forest Investment Associates (FIA), a timberland investment management organization.
The timberland is located around Roanoke Rapids, largely within the coastal region of North Carolina and southeastern Virginia, and has a strong history of professional management.
“The property is an accretive addition to Roseburg’s Western-based timberland portfolio, with close proximity to broad, stable markets,” Roseburg Senior Vice President of Resources Scott Folk said. “With an attractive age class distribution and above-average site productivity, the property represents significant long-term value for the company, as Roseburg seeks to diversify and grow its timber holdings.”
Roseburg currently owns and sustainably manages over 630,000 acres of timberland in Oregon and California, largely composed of Douglas fir.
