An investment in an already planted acacia forest in Colombia starts at 2,625 euros for an area of 0.25 hectares. In exchange, we care for your acacia forest for approximately seven years until the final harvest of the timber, which is expected to take place in 2024. With the help of your investment, we transform the acacia forests step by step into a permanent mixed forest consisting of mainly native tree species.

After the harvest, the timber is traded regionally as biomass and construction wood. The wood of the Acacia mangium tree is hard, robust and versatile and therefore in high demand.

Your GreenAcacia contract consists of two parts: a property lease contract and a forestry service contract. The forecast return for 0.25 hectares GreenAcacia amounts to about 4,200 euros. This equals a return of approximately 7.9 percent (IRR*, normal investment development).

 

For detailed information please see our GreenAcacia brochure.

 

The difference between this forecast yield and a return of 7.9 % (as compared to the data and information provided in our GreenAcacia brochure, as of October 2017) results from a shorter period as well as prices that can already be achieved on the market, not including future increases in prices.

The final harvest is expected to take place earlier – thus the investment period for GreenAcacia is reduced from twelve to only seven years.

Please also read FAQ and our risk disclaimer.

*IRR (Internal Rate of Return) is a method of dynamic investment calculation which is used to calculate the average annual return.
