MELIA DUBIA- MARKETING AND SALES
Posted On: 16/07/2020

Melia Dubia trees are the most preferred alternatives for timber, especially in the wood market. It is a softwood timber with multiple uses and 80% teakwood properties with fast-growing qualities. These trees are the fastest growing ones among the timber species. They need less maintenance and the cost of cultivation is also very low. The wood is strong and durable like any other timber and is in high demand in the plywood industry.

Melia Dubia timber can be sold only after 7 years with a minimum of 1m girth size. It produces 750kg to 1-ton timber per tree after 7-8 years in irrigated lands. A single Melia Dubia tree produces about 20CFT wood. The density of trees per acre at an 80% survival rate under bund plantation is 12ft x 12ft spacing.

Melia Dubia Wood is in demand because:

  • Govt. of India has imposed a permanent ban on drawing timber from Indian forests.
  • Almost all naturally growing trees are exhausted due to its use as firewood, plywood, and timber, etc.
  • Presently, most of the furniture is being imported due to the lack of quality timber in the market.
  • Most of the timber for construction is being imported.
  • Being the fastest growing trees in the world, it will give ample timber on its harvest.
  • It is a fact that almost all the plywood industries are importing timber for their raw material timber needs.
