In order to prevent environmental issues, Fiji Hardwood is making reafforestation a priority for the company.
Fiji Hardwood Chairman Adrian Sofield said reafforestation is important for the sustainability of the industry.
Replanting is a critical process for Fiji Hardwood and also a requirement by countries they export timber to.
“We cannot just take everything and leave nothing behind, we have to prevent the environmental issues such as erosion from happening,” said Sofield.
Around 250 thousand mahogany seedling are expected to be planted and these seedlings are cared for until it is able to sustain itself.
Fiji Hardwood’s next big operation is in Vanua Levu next month where the company is planing to start harvesting and processing timber from the twenty thousand hectors of land.
