This is not listed in the UK and so unlikely to be added anytime soon.

If you follow the link you posted at the top of the page these are the only two listings:

You meant to post the link to the UCITS ETF:


Which does have a LSE listing.

Are you in this one?

I’ve been looking back over their returns and they seem to do fairly well, definitely makes some returns at times but also seem to be badly affected when the markets go down.

I’m considering picking this one up as a small holding as I like the idea of some of the holdings in this ETF; Some of the top ones seem to be based around sustainability of forests for production of timber etc.

Only concern I have is I might be throwing in on the peak, but who knows?

Anyone know why the day to day chart for this one is so slow? It hasn’t updated at all since 8.05am today.

Very low trading volume. Only 3x trades so far today according to LSE.

Is there any point in this forum having a reply or quote option? Boggles the mind the people that invent this cr*p.

Really like this one, hardly setting the world alight, some might say it’s a bit of a boring ETF but it’s a steady climber, I’m up 30% since buying 6 months ago. Plus a 1% dividend…

Nice ETF to have ticking along in the background which you can forget about :slight_smile:


Yeah, it is one of my favourites, it has gone up 6% for me in two months and I wish I had more to invest into it tbh.

Interested to hear from others holding this ETF? If any?! Still low volumes of trades, which surprises me given the hike in lumber price over the last year.

I am currently debating with myself how long to hold for, such a rapid climb in lumber price can only lead to a crash (or somewhat of a pullback, at least) which wouldn’t be great for this ETF…! But when?! :thinking:
