What makes our trees special?
By planting our fast growing, low-oil hardwood trees exclusively in fallow lands, we breathe new life into forgotten areas
How we do it
We have created our own hybrid trees specially developed to grow in poor soil conditions and mitigate damage to existing ecosystems.
Each tree grows
5~7m per year
Top quality hardwood
satisfies market demand
Eucalyptus - a raw material in global demand
Wood is a raw material in demand around the world – it has always been that way and it won’t change.
High-quality hardwood is versatile – its use ranges from furniture construction to frames and window ledges to paneling and is used as construction wood in houses or shipbuilding.
To meet the needs of the industry, two things are required: on one hand that trees planted on the plantations are fast-growing for a rapid harvest and commercialization. On the other hand, that the quality of the harvested raw wood is of high quality for good prices on the market.
We have therefore made eucalyptus the heart of our project – not just any, but the fastest-growing eucalyptus in the world. The trees we plant grow at a record-breaking rate -in both height and width.
The demand for quality lumber never goes out of season
Monocropping for good
Let’s face it, monocropping has a bad name – and for good reason.
When implemented carelessly, large-scale commercial monocrops can wreak havoc on existing native plant species and exacerbate soil degradation.
TREECYCLE works differently
- can grow in poor soil conditions
- produces only a fraction of the amount of oil vs. normal eucalyptus – drastically reducing forest fire threat
- has a record-setting growth rate of 5-7m/year
Our specialized trees allow us to fill the real need for hardwood in the Paraguay economy, thereby reducing illegal deforestation and desctruction of the native rainforest.
Furthermore, TREECYCLE protects local ecosystems by saving local native forests wherever they exist naturally in the fallow land we reforest. Finally, a portion of all profits are committed directly to planting and maintaining native plant reforestation efforts.
Paraguay: the perfect choice
Paraguay is the result a long search. Many factors and criteria played an important role when looking for a suitable location. Paraguay offers unique advantages for investors and emigrants. It provides optimal conditions for reforestation. Also economical, social and legal conditions are optimal. To introduce to you the country, its advantages and opportunities, we have created a short film for you.
According to an estimate of the association of the Paraguayan wood industry FEPAMA the annual demand in Paraguay requires a plantation area of 100,000 hectares.

Seven convincing reasons for Paraguay
Paraguay is the result of a long search. Many factors and criteria played an important role when looking for a suitable location. Paraguay offers unique advantages for investors and emigrants. It provides optimal conditions for reforestation. Also economical, social and legal conditions are optimal. To introduce to you the country, its advantages and opportunities, we have created a short film for you.
The country offers the perfect climate for the growth of eucalyptus. The overall climate is tropical to subtropical, with wet and dry periods instead of seasons. Paraguay is the second most water rich country in the world. Fertile soils allow up to three harvests per year.
Paraguay is characterized by deforestation: over 85% of the country has been deforested in recent decades. The remaining areas are largely acidified and are no longer used. Paraguay therefore has large contiguous areas of fallow land, which are ideal for reforestation.
Investors are welcomed with open arms. In 1993, for example, an investment protection agreement was concluded between Germany and Paraguay, which guarantees security for German capital investments in Paraguay and vice versa.
An unlimited lifelong residence permit can easily be obtained with legal security. Local and foreign investors are treated equally and are equally promoted. Investors benefit from a favorable tax rate of 10%.
The demand for wood as fuel and building material is particularly high in Paraguay.
The economy is growing steadily and the expansion of the infrastructure is continuously promoted. Paraguay has one of the lowest inflation rates in Latin America and is one of the least indebted countries in Latin America and has a very young population. 70% are under 35 years old. Entrepreneurs can choose from a large amount of workers.
Paraguay is with 7.5 million people one of the least populated countries in Latin America.
