Growth at high speed
The heart of our plantations: A particularly fast growing eucalyptus. The type of eucalyptus we use is perfectly matching climatic conditions and the soil in Paraguay. This way a growth of 5-7 m per year is made possible. A high quality hardwood in demand on the timber market.
Tree growth of
5-7 m per year.
High quality hardwood
The perfect choice: eucalyptus.
To meet the needs of the industry, two things are required: on one hand that trees planted on the plantations are fast growing for a rapid harvest and commercialization. On the other hand, that the quality of the harvested raw wood
is of high quality for good prices on the market. We have therefore made eucalyptus the heart of our project – not just any, but the fastest growing eucalyptus in the world. The trees we plant grow at a record-breaking rate -in both height and width.
Eucalyptus - a raw material in great demand
Wood is a raw material in demand around the world – it has always been that way and it won’t change.
High-quality hardwood is versatile – its use ranges from furniture construction to frames and window ledges to panelling and is used as construction wood in houses or shipbuilding. According to an estimate of the association of the Paraguayan wood industry FEPAMA the annual demand in Paraguay requires a plantation area of 100,000 hectares.
The right tree in the right location
The type of eucalyptus we use is extremely low in oils. This means on one hand that the entire energy of the tree can be directed towards rapid growth of the wood. On the other hand makes this special circumstance our plantations extremely resistant to fire. Furthermore, eucalyptus loves water-rich locations – and Paraguay has one of biggest water reservoirs in the world.

Seven convincing reasons for Paraguay
The country offers the perfect climate for the growth of eucalyptus. The overall climate is tropical to subtropical, with wet and dry periods instead of seasons. Paraguay is the second most water rich country in the world. Fertile soils allow up to three harvests per year.
Paraguay is characterized by deforestation: over 85% of the country has been deforested in recent decades. The remaining areas are largely acidified and are no longer used. Paraguay therefore has large contiguous areas of fallow land, which are ideal for reforestation.
Investors are welcomed with open arms. In 1993, for example, an investment protection agreement was concluded between Germany and Paraguay, which guarantees security for German capital investments in Paraguay and vice versa.
An unlimited lifelong residence permit can easily be obtained with legal security. Local and foreign investors are treated equally and are equally promoted. Investors benefit from a favorable tax rate of 10%.
The demand for wood as fuel and building material is particularly high in Paraguay.
The economy is growing steadily and the expansion of the infrastructure is continuously promoted. Paraguay has one of the lowest inflation rates in Latin America and is one of the least indebted countries in Latin America and has a very young population. 70% are under 35 years old. Entrepreneurs can choose from a large amount of workers.
Paraguay is with 7.5 million people one of the least populated countries in Latin America.
