SPECIAL ADVANTAGES OF OWNING A PLANTATION IN COSTA RICA:
1. By Costa Rican law the owner is exempt of all taxes on property. In addition the income produced by the sale of the wood from the plantation is also completely free of all taxation.
2. By Costa Rican law the owner is free to use the land, the wood and the profit in any way he wishes. There is no need to obtain any permission for cutting, transportation or industrialization.
3. By Costa Rican law, a plantation purchase price of at least US$100,000 permits the owner to obtain legal permanent residence status in Costa Rica. This gives the owner all the rights of a Costa Rican citizen, except the right to vote in national elections.
4. The plantation land acquired constantly increases its value in this fertile and prosperous part of the tropics.
5. The investment in this zone of Costa Rica is safeguarded by the very stable political conditions of the country. Costa Rica is well known as the Sentinel of Democracy in Latin America and has a higher literacy rate than the USA.
Tree Plantations I believe are a sound investment in Costa Rica.
