How do I invest in forestry stocks?

Timber and forests are guarantors for the mitigation of climate change and a natural source of wood. Forests cover large areas of land, represent an indispensable measure for reducing carbon emissions and are the main producers of oxygen.

This offers opportunities for companies that own forest or are involved in its management. Wood-processing industries are also part of this trend, as are listed forest funds in the form of REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). These companies can be used to create an index.
