Portfolio activity:


Currently ungeared, which is reassuring.

Lack of yield could be driving this down. Renewables generally have been sold down in favour of gilts. I'm not particularly fussed.

The annual report was recently published. Download from here:


Voluntary carbon Credits (VCCs) are a potentially interesting feature.

• £0.6m progress made to date.

• I think each VCC is conservatively valued at between £14 and £35. (From AR numbers.)

• Current estate looks like it has potential worth of £14m in VCCs in addition to harvesting and land value appreciation.

There's lots more about the carbon market in the AR.

FSF provides access to a fairly uncorrelated asset class and a market which is still in its infancy but has potential. I'm happy to have around 2% of our portfolio invested here.

I'm not bothered about the yield. It takes 35 years to grow a tree and you can't cut a few branches off each year for the dividend.

To me the total return is more important than yield although I get some people want a steady income stream (although you could sell something each year to achieve the same)

At the margin as a 20% tax payer, the CGT is more than the dividend rate although before Mr Hunt got greedy the CGT allowance was helpful.

96p to buy as I write. I'm not sure what I think about that. Catching falling knifes is difficult. Based on the US price of Lumber which I know is a bad proxy but the best proxy I have right now 96p doesn't look exciting to me. I could be wrong, that happens reguarly.

This has lost its froth and we are getting back close to the IPO price.

I like this fund, but I struggle to value it with confidence.

There don't seem many buyers around and I'm not tempted yet.

They've spent up:


The next fundraising might be delayed!

yes, but I understand the WCC has introduced more stringent tests for creation of PIUs and subsequent WCCs. Will FSF be able to certify their created afforestation carbon credits through another agency? Same problem faced by all forestry commercial afforestation projects.

Interesting article about carbon credits on Kepler intelligence majoring on FSF.
Not sure I understand how this will work in practice if the WCC doesn't relent over the afforestation changes it has introduced.

FY results issued after hours yesterday:


Not best practice!

Looks good on a first reading. Includes a lot on carbon markets and climate-related issues, which I ought to be reading but haven't done!

Interesting RNS about the VCM. I'm not sure about its significance, but the company is pleased:

Updated NAV statement. (Link in header news section.)

Looks quite a significant increase to 105.0p. The "mark to market" aspect might be a bit dubious (market, what market?) but carbon credits seem to be playing a big part in the calculations.

I see the share price rose yesterday, so maybe there won't be more to go for today? I'm wondering if theyll be itching for another fundraising - last one was June.

REsults and presentation 14 December.
