What We Do

Timber

It is high time we exploited the potential of private plantations in India (for example, Melia Dubia plantation) in a sustainable manner in light of the ever-widening demand-supply gap for timber in India.

In the last decade or so, India became the world’s substantial wood fiber import market due to the scarcity of domestic timber resources and is likely to remain, primarily, a log import market. There is already a tripling in demand for softwood log imports and more than a doubling of demand for teak log imports.

Timber is mainly used by the construction, furniture, wood panels, and paper sectors. The demand for furniture is rising between 12 and 15 percent annually and the demand for paper is rising steadily at about 8 percent annually, and experts believe the annual demand for wood-based panel products such as plywood, fibreboard is 8 million cubic meters against the production of 3.4 million cubic meters.

It is time the problems associated with the wood production in the country are recognized and necessary steps are taken to keep up with the rising wood demands due to population growth, infrastructural development, economic growth, and industrialization. The agroforestry sector (one of the fastest-growing sectors that assures excellent income) is required to be given a boost now and the government must realize that abundant lands exist to produce wood. Melia Dubia (Malabar Neem) plantation is a very good option for farmers looking for plantation crops or agroforestry due to its high demand in the industry for its wood, and the fact that it delivers high profit per acre.

In India, there is a huge market for timber, and Melia Dubia assures timber sale only after 7 years only with minimum 1-meter girth size, producing 750 kg to one ton per tree after 7-8 years in irrigated lands. One tree produces about 20 CFT of wood. The huge demand for Melia Dubia wood can be attributed to the govt imposed a ban on a drawing of timber from Indian forests, with almost all naturally grown trees exhausted for the use of firewood, plywood, timber, etc. Due to this reason, presently most of the furniture is being imported due to lack of quality timber in the market, most of the timber for construction is being imported. Being the fastest growing tree in the world, Melia Dubia will give ample timber on its harvest. It is a fact that almost the entire plywood industry is importing timber for their raw material timber needs.
