2 Forests? Competitive Advantage is generated through its Intellectual Property vested in the Kiri Tree and its Global Forestry Plan.

This enables it to generate several life cycles within one of its competitors cycles and generate several returns from both carbon credits and lumber. Many competitors in this forestry market segment are small operators or narrowly focused on a specific forest or region. 2 Forests with its global focus gains an advantage by being positioned to take advantage of opportunities as they arise regardless of the location. This focus on geographically disparate large plantations affords ECO2 Forests the access to large reserves of lumber and the ability to harvest and meet demand all year round. And of course, as a public listed company in the US it has wide reaching marketing and investor exposure. 2 Forests generates additional competitive advantage from its early mover status in the Global Carbon Trading Market. This enables it to make its name early as a provider and secure market share ahead of later entrants.
