Equity Value—The Challenge and the Opportunity

Privately held land, whether large industrial or small individually owned, has substantial value. Primary wood processing mills generally restructure holdings to capture the standalone value of this land. Individuals, especially as estates are planned and settled, must account for the value that land represents in their portfolio. Preferential or below market valuation is increasingly difficult to defend and overvaluation is illegal.
