Social projects and wood investment

Investment

Mahogany trees

Real mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) is a rock solid and ecological form of investment. And safe since the globally increasing demand for hard wood stimulates the demand in the long term. However, it takes 12 years until the trees can be harvested. We offer three options to join our unique and social partner concept. The low entry-level price secures your shareholder return.

Teak trees

The basic concepts of an investment in teak trees (Tectonia grandies) are the same as in our Mahagoni-Invest.For many years now, teakwood undergoes a steady and growing demand. As a high-graded wood it is a popular material for outdoor furniture and high quality interior furnishings because it is very resistant to the effects of adverse weather and wood pests.

Cacao trees

A cacao tree is delicate and needs to be nurtured and cared for with intellect. We work with precise protocols on our farms, protocols which also include the professional thinning of trees in order to start with the payouts as early as in the third year. Our good staff has to fulfill very high demands. An investment, however, becomes thus a profit for all parties involved.

Background

What is Mama Earth?

For many years now, Mama Earth is occupied with reforestation. Among other things, our foundation is non-commercially planting mangroves in the Gulf of Davao / Philippines in order to boost the fish abundance over there. We were and are supported by Rettet den Regenwald e.V., the Umweltbank etc. 1.037.000 mangroves have already been planted (June 2016). The aim is 1,2 million. Hence there are only 163.000 mangroves lacking.  

In order to stop illegal logging in natural forests we commercially plant mahogany and teak. Within three years we have planted more than 128.000 trees for commercial logging. Due to a low-entry price we generate good rates of return, although the farmers receive 50 percent. Whoever wishes to join our hard-wood program will be heartily welcomed.

Social Investment

myTree - The entirely personalized tree with photo

Our myTree-Projekt was launched in the summer of 2016. The aim is to plant 5.000.000 endemic trees in order to help nature to develop woodlands again. We do not collect donations to achieve this goal but we offer you the acquisition of a uniquely identified tree (4,50 euro with photo). Through the coordinates which are stated on your tree photo, you can see the exact planting location in Google Earth. Google Maps can direct you to the tree. Moreover, we have a very practical bag available in our shop, a bag which is individually printed with the coordinates of your tree. There are no two bags exactly alike!

Mangroves Project

The Davao Gulf cuts deep into the eastern side of the island Mindanao / Philippines. Its water surface is more than twelve times as large as the Bodensee. The huge bay supplied more than three million people with fish to eat. This is not possible anymore for a number of reasons. It was only a decade ago that mangroves were thoughtlessly cut down. Not only a local biotope perishes without mangroves, but the breeding grounds for fish become sparse as well. Support the reforestation with the purchase of mangroves. In fall 2016 alone we planted – thanks to your help – 12.000 mangroves. Thank you!
