Ecotrust Forests Fund, LLC
EFF-I is an all-equity fund that is fully invested in properties located in Oregon and Washington states. EFF-I generates returns primarily through long-term biological growth of forestland, sale of harvested timber and supplemented with income from environmental markets (primarily carbon offsets), conservation easements and New Market Tax Credits. EFM’s ecosystem-based style of management is focused on improving forest health, productivity and long-term value for investors.
