We note that in addition to the Common Units outstanding, of which approximately 19% are owned by affiliates of Holdings and the Buyer, U S TIMBERLANDS CO LP
also has outstanding subordinated limited partner interests ("Subordinated Units") that are primarily owned by Mr. Rudey
and the other officers and directors of the General Partner (as well as their affiliates) who have formed Holdings and the Buyer.Pursuant to U S TIMBERLANDS CO LP
's limited partnership agreement, consummation of the Merger (as defined below) requires the approval of the General Partner and at least a majority of the outstanding Common Units and Subordinated Units, each voting as a separate class. The Merger Agreement provides for, among other things, a cash tender offer (the "Offer") by the Buyer to acquire all of the outstanding Common Units, other than Common Units held by Holdings, the Buyer, the General Partner and each affiliate of any of the foregoing (including Mr. Rudey and the other officers and directors of the General Partner who have formed Holdings and the Buyer), at a price of $3.00 per Common Unit, net to the seller in cash (the "Offer Price"), and for a subsequent merger of the Buyer with and into U S TIMBERLANDS CO LP pursuant to which, among other things, each outstanding Common Unit and Subordinated Unit, other than in either case those owned by Holdings, the Buyer, the General Partner or any affiliate of the foregoing, will be converted into the right to receive the Offer Price (the "Merger" and, together with the Offer, the "Transactions").

...Our opinion addresses only the fairness from a financial point of view to the holders of the Common Units, other than Holdings, the Buyer, the General Partner, and each affiliate of the foregoing (including Mr. Rudey and the other officers and directors of the General Partner who have formed Holdings and the Buyer), of the consideration to be received by such holders pursuant to the Offer and the Merger, taken together, and we do not express any views on any other terms of the Offer or the Merger.
Specifically, our opinion does not address the Special Committee's underlying business decision
to recommend the Transactions.In addition, our opinion does not address the solvency of the Company or any of its affiliates following the Transactions or at any time. It is understood that this letter is for the benefit and use of the Special Committee
solely in its consideration of the Transactions, and (except as otherwise provided in the engagement letter, dated as of June 7, 2001, between the Special Committee
and us) may not be used for any other purpose or reproduced, disseminated, quoted or referred to at any time, in any manner or for any purpose without our prior written consent.We have been engaged and are acting solely as an advisor to the Special Committee
and not as an advisor to or agent of any other person.This opinion does not constitute a recommendation to any unitholder with respect to whether such holder should tender Common Units pursuant to the Offer or as to how such holder should vote or otherwise act with respect to the Merger, and should not be relied upon by any unitholder as to any such matter. Based upon and subject to the foregoing, including the various assumptions and limitations set forth herein, it is our opinion that, as of the date hereof, the consideration to be received by the holders of Common Units, other than Holdings, the Buyer, the General Partner, and each affiliate of the foregoing (including Mr. Rudey and the other officers and directors of the General Partner who have formed Holdings and the Buyer), pursuant to the Offer and the Merger, taken together, is fair to such holders from a financial point of view.
