“Opportunities have never been greater. The task has never been more urgent. An ancient Chinese proverb says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.” We hope that, after reading this report, investors and entrepreneurs will agree and be inspired to make money by taking up the business of growing trees.”
Andrew Steer President & CEO World Resources Institute, Mark Tercek President & CEO The Nature Conservancy for The Business of Planting Trees: A Growing Investment Opportunity
The commercial forestry sector contributes over $600 billion to the global economy (World Bank Group, 2016) each year. E.g. New Forests Pty Ltd manages approximately $3 billion worth of assets. This is more than 780,000 ha.
The current trend in the investment sector is a high-yield agribusiness associated with growing Paulownia trees.
Paulownia is one of the world’s fastest growing trees. It is officially registered with the EU authority for plant species, has a European passport and TÜV quality certificate, as well as relevant EU trade permits. The demand for paulownia is explained by the growing demand for wood. It is often referred to as the “magic tree” or “oil well” tree in the United States and European countries since it generates solid gains. In China, Paulownia is grown on an area of 2.5 million hectares.
Paulownia clones are used in commercial technology, allowing to make accurate forecasts for planting efficiency and obtaining a product with specified characteristics.
Paulownia is highly valued in the woodworking and furniture industries. In 5-6 years, a plot of 1 ha is able to produce 240-350 m3 of high-quality wood.
The investors save their time and effort since the company will be handling all the complex technological, legal and economic tasks itself. The fund reports to investors on the financial and technical project performance figures on a quarterly basis.
ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS:the plant is notable for having very large green leaves, processing large amounts of С02 and releasing oxygen. Therefore, the project may be eligible for monetary compensation for low carbon dioxide emissions.
TECHNOLOGICAL BENEFITS: With paulownia clones, it is possible to grow a product which is ready for cutting in a relatively short period of time. The fact that it preserves viability at extreme negative temperatures is another advantage.
SOCIAL BENEFIT: involvement in the Paulownia project compensates for social accountability resulting from other kinds of business.
