Backed by the power of science and people, we create value for investors through rigorous forest management strategies in selected regions of the world.

Company Profile and History

Founded in 1998, GreenWood carved a unique niche in the market by combining an exclusive focus on varietal forestry with intensive plantation management. The result was higher-quality, fast-growing plant material and improved plantation yields. Led by our science, we expanded our operations from our base in Oregon to other regions of the world.

In 2006 we entered into a joint venture with International Forestry Investment Advisors, LLC, to develop innovative, higher-return forestry investment strategies for sophisticated institutional investors. These strategies included using forest science to provide better, more reliable returns, investing in emerging markets to provide higher risk-adjusted returns and better market diversification, and exploring the opportunities between public and private timberland markets.

TIAA-CREF, a Fortune 500 company providing financial services to universities, hospitals, and other nonprofit organizations, acquired a majority stake in GreenWood in 2012. The synergy between GreenWood and TIAA-CREF offers investors access to an exceptional management group skilled in forestry investment strategies.

Headquartered in Portland, Ore., today we manage a globally diversified forestry assets portfolio for institutional investors such as public and corporate pension plans, endowments, and foundations—along with large family offices and high net-worth individuals. We are recognized as a world scientific leader in proprietary elite varietals for the plantation forestry industry. In addition to serving markets for traditional forest products, we have taken a leadership role in growing wood biomass for energy end uses.
