INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Paper Industry ETF'

Given the limited number of paper companies based in the U.S., timber & forestry ETFs tend to be global in scope. Apart from the U.S., these ETFs include companies from regions that have a significant presence in the industry, such as Asia, Canada and Finland. For this reason, these ETFs could also be considered an investment in the global economy as well.
