Item 1A. Risk Factors

Investing in our common stock involves a significant degree of risk. You should carefully consider each of the following risks and all of the other information contained in this report. Some of the risks described below relate principally to our business and the industry in which we operate, while others relate principally to our spin-off from Potlatch. The remaining risks relate principally to the securities markets generally and ownership of our common stock.

Our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity could be materially adversely affected by any of these risks, and, as a result, the trading price of our common stock could decline.
