Besides own mixed forest forestation, ForestFinance acquires existing Acacia monocultures in Viet Nam, after the harvest in species-rich forest to convert them. For the Acacia is ideal, because it binds air nitrogen into the soil and thereby improving the quality of the soil. Can be eliminated the monoculture plantations over the medium term and ecologically valuable forests created in its place. Study: ForestFinance forestry concept promotes biodiversity within their diploma thesis examined forestry engineer Carola Paul in collaboration with the Faculty of silviculture TU Munich the biodiversity of the ForestFinance forests in Panama las Lajas,. The result: The biodiversity of plants, as well as the acceptance of animals is greater thanks to the concept of mixed forest, as in conventional orchards. The study was conducted with the award of the Munich-based forest science company e. V.

awarded. “Thanks to its exemplary management the ForestFinance offered to forests in Panama, to explore the practical implementation and effect of ecological policies here”, explains Paul. Studies on the spreading mechanisms of plant species found in the understory showed that 90 percent of these species are spread by animals. This corresponds to the distribution structure of natural ecosystems, and shows that the ForestFinance stocks represent an accepted Habitat for animals and therefore positively affect biodiversity. This success is due the fact that the Bonn-based enterprise when the stocks of existing trees and forest residues into the plantations. “Wood plantations offer various possibilities for the protection of biodiversity.

The example of ForestFinance shows, that such management measures are practically feasible and can provide both economic and environmental benefits”, sums up Paul. A special importance in biodiversity conservation again burned pastures, because under normal circumstances, no growth would be possible on the leached soils. The newly created forest to create refuges for many species and hiking between the natural forests. To what extent plantations support biodiversity, however strongly depends on its management. Therefore, guidelines for the protection of biodiversity have formulated a number of international organisations such as the FAO (food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and the ITTO (International Tropical Timber Organization) in wood plantations. These include among others, grown native rather than exotic species not in large-scale monoculture, but as at ForestFinance in mixed culture and ForestFinance: the Bonn ForestFinance specializes in forest investments group, the lucrative return link to environmental and social sustainability.
