Your investment

Buy trees in Brazil and we’ll look after them for you.

As a leading provider of tree investment schemes, we have already paid owners proceeds from wood sales 24 times since the foundation of ShareWood in 2007, with average returns of 6.0 to 8.9% IRR p.a. (as at 2019) from the renewable commodity wood.

Investment model

The returns on an investment in wood depend on a combination of two factors:

Increase in value at
6 % per year

due to the biological tree growth.

As a natural commodity, your trees grow every year, and therefore their value keeps increasing. Natural tree growth means that the volume of wood increases regularly by up to 6 % each year.


Increase in value at
2.5 – 5 % per year


due to the rising price of wood.


Wood prices have been rising steadily for years – at a much higher pace than interest rates. Assuming a moderate increase in the price of wood of 2.5 % per annum, it could result in a net return of around 9 % per annum.

Risk hedging

Risks and hedging

A tree purchase, a natural product, means that the acquisition of owner-ship of the trees takes place with a short, medium and long-term perspec-tive and that different economic factors can have effects on the value of the trees. Like all natural products, trees also depend on environmental influences. In our growing areas, the soil conditions and the supply of light and water are virtually optimal. Nevertheless, certain factors can influence the value of the wood and a total loss is possible. Read below to find out what possible risks exist among others and how ShareWood at-tempts to cover:

Natural growth fluctuations and poor wood quality

Management by Swiss forestry and agricultural specialists

Natural factors such as storms, drought, tree fungi and pests

4 years product warranty after planting (teak)

Fluctuations in timber prices and loss of the customer market

Agreement with established joint venture partners for further processing and sale of wood directly in Brazil

Dependence on ShareWood

Transfer of ownership of trees, sale of trees possible at any time, service contract can be terminated at any time

ShareWood has no influence on currency fluctuations and economic changes as well as inflation and political changes.

Tree species

Our tree species

Eucalyptus – a world-champion grower

In addition to teak, ShareWood also cultivates the versatile eucalyptus tree. Its advantages are that it grows rapidly, is easy to maintain and enjoys a high level of demand in Brazil itself, the country where we cultivate it. Eucalyptus plantations also perform an important environmental function: they protect the natural eucalyptus forests in Asia and Australia against further clearing. (At the moment not available)

Teak – the king of high-grade woods

Teak is one of the toughest types of wood. It is rich in natural oils and secondary plant compounds, which protect it against fungi and other pests. The above-average rubber content makes the wood water-repellent and extremely hard and durable. Thanks to these qualities, teak is in great demand all around the world, making it a safe and profitable investment.
