Productive Forests or Plantations
Our plantations are understood, according to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, WBCSD, as Productive Forests. Thanks to the certified sustainable forest management we operate, we can produce fiber. Fiber is a raw material of natural and renewable origin with high environmental attributes for a series of derivative products while at the same time conserving our natural and native heritage, specific to each geography where we operate.
CMPC’s nurseries play a fundamental role in the forestry cycle. They are present in Argentina, Brazil and Chile, through the El Pindo (Province of Misiones), Barba Negra (State of Rio Grande do Sul), Carlos Douglas (Biobío region) and Aysén (in Aysén) nurseries, respectively. In these facilities, the best genetic samples of plants are produced, in terms of volume, shape, and wood properties, from seeds and vegetative propagation, ensuring the quality of native and productive forests.
Logs and Chips
The company’s productive forests are sustainably operated, with proactive action in the plantations, through thinning, harvesting, and preventive control of rural fires. They produce pulpwood logs, sawlogs, and laminated logs (pruned and knotty). After harvesting, the same land is reforested, thus giving birth to a new forest and starting a new forestry cycle.
