An excerpt from the Website of Tropical American Tree Farms growing precious tropical hardwoods for you! "At Tropical American Tree Farms, we are planting and sustainably growing many of the finest species of exotic tropical hardwoods in the world - millions of tropical hardwood trees, for harvest, for profit, both for our own account and by contract for thousands of individuals, IRA's, companies, and trusts. Whether as an investment, for your retirement or for future college costs, transferring wealth to your children or grandchildren, or producing your own tropical hardwoods for your personal use or for your business, we would love to grow these precious tropical trees for you! The tropical hardwoods we are growing on our tree farms are being crafted into some of the finest furnishings and architectural applications in the world. At the same time, by producing tropical hardwoods that are not being taken from the natural forest, we are helping to reduce the pressure on the world's declining natural rainforests and providing much needed employment in rural Costa Rica. We are also carefully protecting nearly 7,000 acres of tropical rainforest on our farms. We would love to have you join us in this unique and rewarding opportunity!
Overview Since 1991, we have planted more than 2 million trees of more than fifty different tropical hardwood species for more than 4,000 discerning individuals and corporate clients around the world. Our focus is principally on increasingly scarce high value, fast growing tropical hardwood species. Young teak trees for example can reach 70 feet tall in just 10 years.
The tropical hardwoods we are growing are highly prized for their beauty and sought after for the very finest furniture, cabinetry, exquisite inlay work, architectural accents, musical instruments, and other uniquely beautiful furnishings.
We will plant and grow for you, your IRA, trust or foundation, your children or grandchildren, your church or school, or anyone you wish, the same precious species of tropical hardwoods that we are growing for our own account.
You can choose which of our species of precious hardwoods that you would like to own, and we do all the rest. We will select, plant, and care for your trees on our tropical tree farms in Costa Rica for up to 25 years, exactly as we do our own trees, in the same professional manner and with the same experienced personnel. Our tropical hardwoods are truly beautiful
At each thinning and harvest, you may choose to keep the precious hardwood lumber from your trees for your own use, or sell it yourself. Or if you prefer, we will sell your hardwoods for you and send you the proceeds.
Your trees, and the tropical hardwoods they produce are yours to enjoy!" ~~~~~~~~~~ I just want to say i am so happy my trees are growing on TATF Farms!
