The Mesoamerican Forestry Group originated from the initiative of a small group of investors with interest and passion for growing trees. This passion resulted in the establishment of three tree plantations, totaling 171 hectares of forestry, focused on high value and rare timber species with high demand in local and international markets.
The main driver of the tree plantations investment was built around the “Smart Economics” principle in order to implement something innovative and different to achieve better results. This approach focused the operations into the selection and cultivation of high value timber species and the implementation of the best silvicultural practices to achieve the best results over the shortest time frame and with the necessary investments to secure quality and efficiency.
However, the selection of high value species came with a serious challenge; the lack of serious, practical and verified information that could provide with the best “recipe” to grow and cultivate high value species such as Rosewood, Mahogany and others. This situation was addressed by the group through the use of forestry engineering: observation, experimentation, trial and error. As a result of this and after some 10 years of meticulous monitoring, implementation and evaluation of our plantations, MFG has developed the best cultivation practices that ensure the proper and efficient silvicultural management of our highest value species: Cocobolo (Dalbergia retusa) and Brazilian Rosewood (Dalbergia nigra).
The current condition of the plantations ensures a very profitable future when the established plantations will be harvested over the next 10 – 15 years. This forecasted success is secured by a combination of special characteristics
of our plantations that include: legal compliance with registries, environmental compliance and continuous management through our trained, reliable staff.
