African Forest is a new holistic forestry company which plans to tap the wealth available in agro-forestry in an innovative and sustainable way, in order to benefit investors, the environment, and the communities surrounding the plantations. African Forest is focusing on the high potential value available in indigenous trees, both for long-term hardwood timber and also for the ongoing revenue that can be derived from them for medicinal and other uses on a sustainable basis. Some exotics will be planted, but limited to those species which are actually beneficial to the environment. In addition, new uses of trees and their by-products are being investigated as part of our research, product design and development strategy. Forest-related products will be produced in collaboration with the local communities, and marketed and distributed by African Forest. To achieve the full range of benefits available from forestry activities, African Forest is establishing and promoting a series of related companies and brands
