Plantation Forests & Activities
Plantations on their own, are adequate to sustainably meet world demand for wood in the long run, thus reducing any pressure on natural forests. Most of the increasing global demand for wood will come mainly from developing Asian markets like China and India, demand that is expected to be met by key plantation forest species like Pine, Teak and Eucalyptus. These are grown predominantly in Oceania, the USA, Brazil, Central America and Europe.
We entered the wood products business in 1994, and by leveraging our longstanding origin and consuming market relationships, we began participating in the teak trade flows from Ghana to India. Today, we are one of the largest suppliers in the world for plantation Teak round logs and sawn lumber, sourcing from Latin America and marketing to Asia.
Leveraging on our origination strengths and marketing presence, we have successfully grown our plantation business. We carry out a due diligence of our plantation teak suppliers to ensure that we participate in legally sourced timber which is in compliance with all the laws of the country of origin.
