We work with partners across Southeast Asia who look into plantation land for reforestation projects. For every RM100 (USD25) donated, we plant 1 tree. After 7 years and the first harvest, we replant 3 trees in return. This means for your RM100 (USD25) donation, we plant 13 trees over 14 years.




When do we plant the trees?


We already have a cycle for planting trees, and it is done during the monsoon season. This is when the soil provides optimum conditions for the trees' survival.

We specialize and focus on the Cadamba tree, a lightweight hardwood. Cadamba wood is commonly used in a variety of applications such as ceiling boards, light construction material, plywood, veneer, pencil making, match splints, pulp wood for paper, packing cases, crates, etc. When properly seasoned and treated, Cadamba wood is also used for furniture, flooring, toys, tea-chests, carvings, etc.




Do you provide any Corporate Social Responsibility programs?


Yes, we do work with other businesses who want to contribute to a greener and healthier planet. We can even arrange programs together with companies for team-building initatives, whilst educating the importance and benefits for reforestation.
