OUR PRIMARY GOAL
Protection of the primary forest in Paraguay
Primeval forests are the green lungs of our planet – working to protect them today therefore means caring for the existence of future generations. This protection also includes offering the wood processing industry alternatives to woods from intact virgin forests. We are doing just that by reforesting fallow land with a specially cultivated, fast-growing eucalyptus. At the same time, we are protecting the remaining virgin forests and thus making a valuable contribution to climate protection.
Active protection of the acquired virgin forest stock
No deforestation for the cultivation of monocultures
Resettlement of the plundered Nativas
How we protect the virgin forest
Monoculture as savior of the primeval forests in Paraguay
Our industrial reforestation prevents further deforestation of the rainforest. Previously unused soil can thus provide urgently needed wood through our reforestation efforts. Otherwise, the timber demand would be taken from the still existing virgin forest stand.
Prepare the ground for the primeval forest again
It is only through our eucalyptus cultivation that the soil is again enriched with nutrients. Only this will enable the primeval forest to spread again in the long term. Our long-term goal is to give the virgin forest room to spread again over time.
Active protection and maintenance of the acquired virgin forest remnant.
Still existing primeval forest stands, which we acquire with the areas, are not cleared but protected. Currently, in addition to our eucalyptus areas, we manage more than 200 hectares of virgin forest, which we actively protect.
Reintroduction of the plundered tropical woods (Nativas).
The precious woods, which are so important for the ecosystem but have been largely plundered, are being added back to the virgin forest stand. Among others, the following precious wood species are reforested: Cedro, West Indian Cedrel, Lapacho, Yvyra Pyta, Paraguayan Rosewood, Guatambú and Peterevy.
Suitable reforestation areas are plenty
Paraguay is the result of a long search. Many factors and criteria played an important role in the search for a suitable location. Paraguay offers unique advantages for investors and expatriates. It provides optimal conditions for reforestation. The economic, social and legal conditions are also optimal. To introduce you to the country, its advantages and opportunities, we have created a short film for you.
1. Favorable climate
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.
2. Deforested areas
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.
3. Investment security
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.
4. Foreigners can acquire property
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%.
5. High demand for wood
The demand for wood as fuel and building material is particularly high in Paraguay.
6. Emerging economy
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.
7. Plenty of space for everyone
Paraguay is with 7.5 million people one of the least populated countries in Latin America.
