Your investment in GreenAcacia Vichada means investing in an already existing Acacia mangium plantation in Colombia, which was already afforested in 2012, with a contract term of only seven years. With the help of your investment, we transform the acacia forest plantations 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 revenue for one hectare of GreenAcacia Vichada amounts to about 12,000 euros. This equals a return of approximately 5.6 per cent (IRR*). The expected harvest yield is 220 cubic metres with biomass accounting for 65 per cent (price per cubic metre approx. 30 euros) and timber accounting for 35 per cent (price per cubic metre approx. 137 euros).
In our customer area we provide annual reports on the main developments of your forests, including issues such as growth, maintenance, pest control as well as harvest and sales of the timber.
Our calculations are based on future assumptions, especially on subjective goals regarding future harvest and price developments for biomass and timber.
For detailed information please see our GreenAcacia Vichada brochure.
The limited amount of twelve hectares of GreenAcacia Vichada is located in this area in Vichada, Colombia (see map on the right).
In June 2016, about four years after the planting of the acacia trees, the first measurements on the forest area “Vichada” showed good results regarding height of trees and timber volume. Compared to similar plantings, the timber volume was within a good range, the height of the trees even exceeded comparable figures. New measurements are scheduled for October 2018. Our investors will find the latest results in our growth and activity reports.
