Green Resources manages approximately 38,000 ha of plantation forest all of which were established as greenfield plantations under its management. Green Resources does not harvest from any natural forest areas. About two-thirds of the plantations are pines and about one-third various types of eucalyptus as well as some other areas with other, indigenous, species.
The largest operation is located in Tanzania’s Southern Highlands followed by the Niassa, Mozambique, plantation base. Uganda’s plantations are the most advanced (mature) and the plantations have reached its final size and we are now working towards rotation age. In terms of expansion potential both Tanzania as well as Mozambique offer significant opportunities however the company is currently focussed on bringing the existing asset base into production and rotation.
