Forestry Management

Forest management is based on the establishment, management, protection and harvesting of forest plantations, under a framework of respect and harmony with the natural and social surroundings, in compliance with the demanding, socially fair and economically viable international standards of respect for the environment.

In our case forest management is mainly focused on the poplar, a species that gives us round wood logs which can be rotary cut or peeled into thin layers, of high quality, homogeneous and in sufficient quantity to supply raw material to our industrial plants that manufacture the products sold by Compañía Chilena de Fósforos and Temsa.

The poplar has been selected for our industrial process mainly due to the qualities of the wood; white color, non-resinous, fast growing and a short rotation period.
