Red Bluff Plantation - A 2011 American Timberlands Company Acquisition

Integral to the South Carolina tradition of Lowcountry agriculture, Red Bluff Plantation is an estate encompassing 6,400 acres and containing a full 19th-century plantation home reproduction. Red Bluff Plantation is unique in that American Timberlands Company (ATC) owns and preserves it. The vertically integrated firm focuses exclusively on the origination and management of investments in quality forestland tracts.

The late-2011 purchase of the high-value plantation forestland, which added to approximately 60,000 acres of South Carolina land already owned and managed by ATC. It was part of a larger acquisition that encompassed three plantation tracts totaling 12,000 acres spanning Kershaw, Edgefield, and Jasper Counties.

A core impetus behind the investment was a growing recognition among investors that forestland investments with the right value-add management are able to generate higher rates of returns than traditional timberland investments.
