Default IKEA buying large tracts in East Texas?

Anybody see this? Article is from November but says they purchased 42,000 acres including land in East Texas as part of their conservation efforts.

Forestry is big in their part of the world. I dont know what their definition of conservation is as their stores and products are incredibly odd.

Vertical integration is absolutely a brilliant business practice. I am hoping they are practicing forestry and not environmentalism!

a quote from them in the article has a quote from them about "responsible forest management" and "sustainable foresting" so I be they're going to be cutting. Reading more on it and a couple other articles it sounds like they but these timber tracts as an invest piece and are betting on timber prices increasing globally. It just happens to be nice that their marketing team can sell it as conservation. Good business move by the Swedes

They own a few wind farms, so this doesn’t surprise me...

Based on their business model they’ve been doing with their European timber tracts I would. It reduces their cost and covers them as “eco friendly”

Maybe they will start selling hunting cabins and deer blinds in a box with 124 pieces and messed up instructions.

The Swedes have a thing called "The Right of Public Access", meaning anyone can enjoy land in Sweden, including private land, with a few exceptions. I would sure think they wouldn't mind people walking on their land here and maybe taking a deer or two if their country has a national law allowing people to access private land at will.

I have a feeling they will start giving a map to a tree with a number and tell us it's the new shelf, desk, bed, whatever.

No, it will be a cheap soft metric allen wrench with screws with very shallow wrench cuts. The soft allen wrench will round out within 3 screws due to the poorly tapped screw holes, so you will have to go to town and find a real metric allen wrench. The instructions will be in some form of pidgin English that isn't decipherable. Wait, that may be the far east furniture kit.

Who cares if they are tree huggers, a commitment to sustainable forestry practices from a giant company like that is AWESOME.

It's not like it's land that you can just walk on as it is so you aren't out anything if they do lock it down and don't let anyone else on it.

Just got word that they bought my lease. Been under our management over 30 years. If they lock it down and don't renew the lease we will be out many years of work improving the place.

Hopefully they will carry on as all the previous owners have and continue our lease.

Appears they will.....if profitable and a good insurance risk!

Yes it's true they are buying and will continue to buy land. That said, a management company will take over operations for them.

Campbell will be the TIMO doing the work for them. I'm willing to bet nothing will change regarding your leases and forestry practices will continue.

It's amazing that conservative minded people have ZERO respect for private property in the north. Yes it sucks they are losing the rights to land that's been open to the public for a long time but at the end of the day, the owner has been gracious enough to let them use it. If I owned that land for myself, It would for personal use only.
