In the fourth quarter, the frequent rain in the evening hours makes motorcycling difficult, but is nectar for the trees, as water is their fuel. Together with the sun shining almost daily and the lack of seasons, the tropics are the right mix to observe good growth all year round. But even under the best conditions, not all trees grow the same, nature is nature, which is also very reassuring.
It is also very amazing how well your teak trees develop. The one pictured should not be taken as an example, however, because we planted these first teak trees at a distance of 12 x 12 metres for our field trial in December 2015. Forestry cannot be carried out in this way, because the space required would be enormous. We plant your mahogany and teak trees at a distance of 4 x 4 metres, an optimal compromise, especially since we also allow the farmers to plant other products between their trees after three years, because by then the deep roots have already developed. It is well known that trees with larger spacing form thicker trunks. Why trees are still planted very densely and then „thinned out“, i.e. cut down, is not clear, because the remaining trees have had to share nutrients and water with the cut trees all these years, but they have not produced any value.
Back to the timber: Since our office is going to be a wooden house, we have acquired 21 mahogany trees with diameters of up to 70 centimetres, which will soon be felled. Very sad, but wood is a solid building material and always grows back, if the timber companies could finally decide to plant trees in advance. With good planning, the nonsensical clear-cutting would not happen. We work with your trees in a sustainable way because our projects are monitored by the state environment agency, DENR. In order to get the cutting permit for our purchased trees, numerous documents had to be submitted, but all of them are available for our projects.
