The Lyme Timber Company is a private timberland investment management organization that focuses on the acquisition and sustainable management of lands with unique conservation values. Income from properties in Fund IV comes from the sale of easements that restrict development on lands but allow income generation from sources such as sustainable timber harvesting, recreational leasing, the sale of carbon-offset credits, and alternative energy supply agreements. All working timberland properties in Fund IV are third-party certified by one or both of the leading sustainable forestry certification programs.
