How Timber Investment Works
Say you invest
As the trees grow
they increase in size
At harvest the trees
can be cut and sold
for between $25-$30 per tree
You do the math!
Ecologix currently operates in Cameroon an African country, which boasts that it is one of the most stable economies and business friendly histories in all of Africa. Comparatively speaking, it is deemed more safe and trouble free than China for the past 29 years.
Cameroon is known to be one of the richest countries in Africa in terms of tropical timber. The country has approximately 21,245,000 hectares of forest coverage area and includes a large amount of commercial tree species. The main commercial species are Ayous (Triplochiton scleroxylon), Sapelli (Etandrophragma cylindricum) and Azobe (Lophira alata). Together Frake (Terminalia superba) and Iroko (Milicia/Chlorophora excelsa, Milicia/Chlorophora regia) represent 75% of Cameroon’s timber production.
Cameroon has never experienced a coup d’état or any other kind of armed violence. Unlike most African leaders, Cameroon’s President, HE. Paul Biya has the rare distinction of being a civilian elected President, who has never served in the Army, nor has any ties to it. In short, Cameroon offers tremendous opportunities in a very safe and stable operating environment.
Ecologix is currently operating upon 3,000 hectares in the NDeng NDeng rainforest, an area that is attractive due to its density and variety of tree species. The Company is also in the process of securing additional land concessions directly from local tribal counsels and through the acquisition of operating timber organizations.
Ecologix is currently operating within the NDeng NDeng rainforest on 3,000 hectares of land and is in the process of negotiating for a concession land in NDeng NDeng rainforest which is 400 KM Northeast of Yaoundé. The NDeng NDeng Rainforest in total is considered one of the top concessions in Cameroon in terms of both tree density and timber quality. The targeted concession is estimated to total 250,000 acres of Rainforest and contains approximately 351,225,000 total trees.
Ecologix has secured the rights to 20,000 hectares of rainforest with an estimated 48,250,000 in the Massaka / Desoni region. This area is 325 KM Southeast of Yaoundé. Massaka is a unique opportunity for ECOLOGIX. While it is a valuable concession for the harvesting of timber, the land can also be easily converted for the responsible production of ethanol and biodiesel by creating a biofuel farm. Cameroon has the third largest biomass potential in Sub Saharan Africa.
Ecologix is Green
Ecologix will be taking a 360 degree approach with our Forest Management Plan by indicating alternative land uses based on physical, demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of the area and meet all requirements established for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. (Five year and annual operation plans for timber production forests, micro-zoning plans for village territories and a simple management plan for agro-forestry zones for use by local populations.)
When extracting 100% of the allowed timber, Ecologix exploits a small amount of rainforest – .0003% annually and continually is planting new seedlings to replace extracted timber.
