We own healthy, sustainable plantations and efficient processing plants. We proudly possess 88 600 hectares of Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified land.  These landholdings include 58 700 hectares of FSC certified pine and eucalyptus plantations.

We are the largest solid wood processor producing lumber and plywood in South Africa with a wholesale distribution network designed to increase our service offerings to the market.
