Reforestation

Planting for a bright tomorrow

Commercial Benefits

The Company’s land management and reforestation activity will produce significant amounts of precious tropical hard woods. This timber will be offered in a world market at a time when the supply of such wood is diminishing and prices are rising.

Commercial Reforestation

Bosques Pico Bonito will plant over one million trees. Commercial reforestation will take place on thousands of hectares of previously degraded land. Over 16 native tree species are being planted including; Cedar, Mahogany and Rosewood.

Tree

The commercial reforestation will be selectively and sustainably harvested to FSC certification standards. The project will also produce agroforestry products which may include; Coffee, Rambutan, and Allspice.

The revenue-producing elements of the commercial reforestation are tropical, milled, FSC certified hardwood for local and international consumption, along with pre-harvest thinned wood. The commercial reforestation in degraded areas around the national park will restore habitats and watersheds while providing attractive returns on investment.

Green certification of plantations and logging operations is now occurring worldwide, under a wide variety of certification standards. Each set of standards identifies specific measurable targets to ensure that forest management meets a variety of goals.
