Teak saplings for sale.
In India the demand for wood for purposes such as firewood ,pulp and timber is increasing enormously due to the fast growing population. The existing natural forests are shrinking at the rate of 2 million hectares per year, due to tree felling and using the land for agriculture, mining and other developmental activities. To save this situation according to Food & Agricultural Organisation (F.A.O.) and the world Bank the next decade will be of fast growing trees. The gap between demand and supply of forest products is widening day by day. To overcome this problem and to bridge the gap of forest products , we have taken the initiative of introducing MANGIUM - one of the nature's truly exotic and wondrous tree species, for reforestation along with intensive management of natural forests.
MANGIUM is natures only spectacular creations in the plant kingdom, better known as Australian Teak: it grows better in humid tropical climatic conditions. It can adapt itself to any type of soil and climate. Even under poor conditions MANGIUM tree outgrows all other trees and it can tolerate acidic soil of low fertility as well.
According to the researches conducted by the Australian Center for International Agriculture Research (A.C.I.A.R.) of Australia, MANGIUM trees will reach to a height of 100 ft. (30 mts.) with a stem diameter of 2 ft. (60 cmc. ) in 12 years time.
MANGIUM grows fastest in conditions where the mean annual rainfall is between 1500-2500 millimeter and temp. between 20-40 C.
MANGIUM trees can be cut between 5-6 years of their growth for interim income.
MANGIUM is a leguminous species. It absorbs Nitrogen from the atmosphere and fixes the soil through its root nodules. Thus it increases the fertility of the soil and also controls pollution.
A single acre of land accommodates about 1500/2000 plants with spacing of 4'' - 6'' or 5'' - 6'' between each plant and row and pit size to be not less than 11/2' x 11/2' x 11/2' deep. since the tree grows straight and tall a single tree yields upto 40 cft. of wood. The trees can also be planted as a wind breaker and fire-retardent along the perimeters of the farm. Your investment is wise and 100% safe, because you are investing and planting on your land.
MANGIUM plantations in India are mainly concentrated in West Bengal, Maharashtra, Goa, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Pondicherry and some parts of Gujarat.
FEATURES OF MANGIUM
One of the Fastest growing Teak tree in the world.
» Grows from Ten feet to Twelve feet in just one year. Grows to a height of Fifty to Sixty feet in the Sixth year.
Grows even in arid soil and adverse climatic conditions.
» Is a Nitrogen fixing plant, fertilizes the soil, prevents soil erosion and used as wind breaker on peripheries.
Is good for multicrops like Pepper and Beetle leaf, in the second year. Pepper creepers can be planted at the end of two years
» Is useful for Furniture and Cabinet making and also for industrial and construction purposes.
Is used for particle board manufacturing- used for best quality pulp for manufacturing Kraft paper.
» Grows well even without water if planted during the monsoon ( June & July ) only, and minimum maintenance. In case you have enough water on your land then plantation can be done any time of the year
Two thousand plants can be planted in one acre at a distance of 5 feet each. First lot of one thousand plants are to be cut in the Sixth year. In case plantation is for more than one acre then the quantity per acre will reduce depending on the area to be covered
» No Government restriction for cutting MANGIUM trees. Local Talathi to informed after plantation.
Expected returns from plantations at the end of 5 years
BY WAY OF SELLING 800 TREES ( 200 trees considered not grown properly, died, stolen, destroyed etc. )
Cutting alternate trees at the end of 5th year
Trees sold at Rs. 2000 - 16.00 lacs - for 800 trees
For interim and final cutting, only 800 trees are considered as sold instead of 1000 per acre. A five year Old tree is expected to give more than six cu.ft. of wood. Considering today's rate of Rs. 500/- cu.ft. In kerala, each tree should fetch not less than Rs. 3000/- after five years.
End of 10 years
BY WAY OF CUTTING 800 TREES
( 200 trees considered not grown properly, died, stolen, destroyed ect. )
TOTAL CUTTING AT THE END OF 10 YEAR
20 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 300/-per cu.ft=Rs 6000 x 800 trees. - 48.00 Lacs
20 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 400/-per cu.ft=Rs 8000 x 800 trees. - 64.00 Lacs
30 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 300/-per cu.ft=Rs 9000 x 800 trees. - 72.00 Lacs
30 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 400/-per cu.ft=Rs 12000 x 800 trees. - 96.00 Lacs
40 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 300/-per cu.ft=Rs 12000 x 800 trees - 96.00 Lacs
40 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 400/-per cu.ft=Rs 16000 x 800 trees - 128.00 Lacs
Expected yield from a 12 year old MANGIUM tree is more than 60 cu.ft. of wood. For calculation purpose, it is taken as 20, 30 and 40 cu.ft.
After 10 years, at the time of final cutting, the rate of MANGIUM wood is expected to be well above Rs. 1000 per cu.ft. For safer calculation, it is taken as Rs. 300/400 per cu.ft.Mangium Plantation of 100 acres can be done in stages of 25 acres a year for 4 years.
Additional Income from 4th Year.
Additional Income can be obtained from 4th year by planting pepper vines on alternate Magnium trees.
Minimum rate of Rs.100 per Kg. is taken, even though it is as high as Rs. 300/kg.
Calculations are made for income from 1 acre land & output is taken from 400 trees every year from 1 acre of land.
Year Output / tree in Kgs. Total output From 400 trees in Kgs. Income in Rs. Per year
