ADVANTAGES

EXCLUSIVELY INVESTED IN TIMBERLANDS

CatchMark is one of the few pure-play timber REITs. We own and harvest timberlands, but we do not own any pulp, paper or wood products manufacturing assets to avoid the risks and volatility inherent in manufacturing operations.

A HIGH-QUALITY PORTFOLIO

CatchMark’s portfolio is comprised of highly-productive and well-located timberlands in high-demand mill markets throughout the U.S. South and the Pacific Northwest.

POSITIONED FOR GROWTH

Our strong capital position and liquidity provide the opportunity to acquire prime timberlands to help propel durable cash flow, cover dividends, enhance future growth, and create long-term shareholder value.

PROVEN LEADERSHIP

Our executive team has extensive expertise in real estate, timberland investment, portfolio management, and forest products industries.

LONG-TERM SUPPLY AGREEMENTS

We employ long-term supply agreements with creditworthy mill operators, establishing stable baseload demand and corresponding cash-flow visibility, lowering risk in down markets.
