Fiji Pine Ltd put in substantial investment into pine plantations through the 25 year period till it matures for harvesting.
Simply put, what they invest today and wait till 25 years to see returns from that investment.
These investments are into areas which would otherwise not have an alternative use.
Such a lengthy wait for returns makes our industry unique.
One of the biggest challenges that they face is illegal harvesting of their pine resources. This is THEFT of their valuable resources.
Not only does it impact on the company but it deprives the pine landowners their long awaited returns.
Fiji Pine Group is working very closely with the Ministry of Forestry and Law Enforcement Agencies to ensure that the perpetrators face the full brunt of the law.
