Mission

African Forest's mission is to establish and manage commercial and community agro-forestry plantations throughout Africa, which benefit the environment, the local communities and our investors and donors. Our focus is on planting indigenous hardwood, inter-cropped with a mixture of organic cash crops. We develop and market innovative products from in and around the forest, as well as the future timber, to ensure maximum ongoing revenue. Our mission is also to promote and educate people on the value and benefits of this type of forestry

  • Trees are recognized both for their excellent investment and ongoing business potential; where our investors are reaping returns well above those which can be expected from more traditional investments.
  • Millions of hectares of previously under-utilized and land at risk of desertification in Africa are reforested improving the local ecology, micro climates and reducing soil erosion.This will benefit the planet as a whole by helping to absorb carbon and reduce global warming
  • Local communities are stakeholders in the business as shareholders and as employees. They will also benefit from the additional micro businesses created as a result of our holistic approach to agro-forestry, including the harvesting and processing of new and traditional natural products, bee-keeping and even ecotourism
