Why Investing in Long-Term Wood Plantations Is a Good Idea

Did you know the best ships and boats in the world use a type of wood called “Teca” for the floor construction? Did you know millionaires buy “Teca” to make their home furniture and their house floors?

“Teca” is a type of wood that is planted in tropical weather. The approximate cycle time is of 20 years from planting to harvesting. Even though this is a large time period, it is considered one of the most profitable businesses in the agricultural industry. In fact, the demand of this product is so high, that traders from Eastern countries like India go to South America to buy this wood and ship it to their nations.

People who tend to invest in this business are usually individuals that are looking to have a family business and pass it from generation to generation. However, this is a business with one and only one purpose: Investing in order to have long-term income and profits. Therefore, “Teca” growers do not have plantations looking for a short-term monthly income. Usually, people in this industry have an additional job or business for their living, and think of the “Teca” plantation as their savings for retirement or to pass the business to their next generations.

In terms of maintenance and daily work, this plant does not require much of it. The key time are the first years after the first planting cycle in which care and fertilization must be provided. After that, the tree grows by itself without much job to be done. Another important detail is that after the first harvest, a new plant is naturally regenerated, with better quality and less care needed.

When talking about selling and distribution, there is nothing to worry about. Buyers will come by themselves looking to buy, so this is not a business that requires having a lot of contacts and networking.

The main reason of why this business is so profitable is that there is too much demand and very few supply because most people do not have the necessary amount to invest. The ideal project would be to have your own land and plantation. However, there are many traders and companies looking to sell shares of an existing plantation. Nowadays, this last method is being very common because people do not have enough money but they know and belief in the business wellness and prosperity. In fact, in the last decade, South American farmers and executives with savings have been looking for land and plantations of “Teca” more than ever before in order to invest their money.

Additionally, due to the prosperity and growth of the business, people are looking to become expert forest engineers. Even though this plant does not require of much attention, it is fundamental to have an established project with statistics, measurements and details. This work is done by such forest engineers and hence the reason of people wanting to become one.

Again, this is a long-term business that will not provide any gain or income in the present. However, think about it. If you want to invest your savings and earn more money from it in the future, “Teca” is a great option that should be considered.
