Why Brazil?

ITAS carefully choose the optimum plantation areas for their trees. On selecting the best area for Teak wood the plantation area undergoes a complete soil and tree growth test as part of the process. Brazil has government programmes in place to encourage reforestation through plantation programmes as there are a number of benefits;

• Investor makes a profit,
• New jobs are created,
