Teak investment in teak monocultures with Renaturierungsgarantie Bonn. The Bonn ForestFinance is the name for sustainable forest investments in Panama for many years. The company planted over a million trees already in ecological forests with certified forestry. Monocultures with teak were not available so far. For good reason, because monoculture plantations do not meet the sustainable needs of the company of biodiversity, erosion control and water storage. Teak is a very aggressive greenhouse. Even after the harvesting of the teak trees after typically 20 to 25 years no new forest will be created on a monoculture plantation without additional activities.
And yet ForestFinance offers its investors from immediately teak monoculture areas under the name of “GreenTeak”. A change of attitude? “On the contrary”, commented CEO Harry Aboagye: “we like teak monoculture plantations still not. “But still they exist in large numbers.” ForestFinance has such existing teak surfaces purchased and will convert this to again after the first harvest of the teak trees in a species-rich forest. To ForestFinance calculated on a portion of the income for the reversion of the land. Can be eliminated this teak monoculture plantations over the medium term and ecologically valuable forests created in its place. “By transforming the apparent contradiction resolves itself and it emerges at the end again sustainably HA with all ecological effects, for which ForestFinance is.” GreenTeak is offered with only 17 years duration: the teak forests are planted with already five-year trees, so they have already survived the difficult first years. A significantly lower price, higher tree age and shorter maturity than in competitors also oppose a supposedly lower yield of “GreenTeak” by the costs of the reversion after the harvest.
Harry Aboagye: “we have opted for a retail price of 24,000 euros per hectare GreenTeak. Thus We offer significantly more favourable entry amounts and more attractive terms, despite the costly reconverting of the teak surfaces. We keep prices beyond the 30,000 euro anyway unreasonable. Adequate sustainable forest management this is not required – more for high sales commissions.” Teak (Tectona grandis): Provides one of the most famous and best wood teak. Strong Brown and shiny especially older strains of teak heartwood settles against the narrow, light sapwood on the edge of the root. The smell of fresh wood is reminiscent of leather. Teak, rapid growth, its color, the high weather resistance and the world’s existing market make the most popular wood species from tropical regions. Teak belongs to the Lamiaceae family and is native to the southern Asia monsoon forests. Nowadays, teak in the tropical latitudes is predominantly grown in monoculture plantations. As light tree teak in all life stages requires full light, especially in the Young growth phase. The temperature optimum of teak is located at 25 degrees Celsius, the growth height up to 35 meters.
