Pine and Eucalyptus Trees Afforestation
We began the forestry activity in 1978, with the planting of 100 hectares of pine trees on the Tacuarembó river. Then, after analyzing the results and checking the soil potential, we proceeded to plant 1.600 hectares, 50% pine and 50% eucalyptus between the years 1983 and 2000.
In the case of pine, we produce wood without knots, which translates into logs of high added value, both due to the excellent quality of the wood and the greater use of it.
On the other hand, considering its importance in the paper industry, the wood of the Eucalyptus tree is sold to paper mills, where the pulp is processed. The raw material resulting from this is then exported to countries such as Spain and Finland.
