Red Grandis starts its growth process through natural cloning: By means of careful manual sorting the branches of “parent” plants are selected; the latter are then potted and, in turn, produce another lot of small plants.
Large greenhouses are reserved for cultivating the small trees.
Only those plants that meet the expected requirements are planted outside. From them we take the first branches which trigger a process of natural cloning.
a year are LOGGED
a year are REFORESTED
The Eucalyptus Grandis tree is pruned and its branches are cut five times, to a height of 10 m; after 20-22 years it is cut to an average height of about 50 m.
The trunk is cut when the tree is about 20 years old and its diameter has reached 60/70 cm.
A PERFECT ECOSYSTEM
There is no waste involved because the same amount of wood which is cultivated is logged; as a consequence the forest helps absorb the amount of carbon in the environment.
