Preparation of the final planting land includes clearing any existing brush and cutting of tall grasses which can reach a height of two metres. Once the land has been prepared, the trees are planted at a spacing of 2 metres by 2 metres allowing 2,500 trees to be planted per hectare. Each tree is fertilized at the time of final planting. This 2 by 2 spacing allows the trees to grow to harvesting size without further thinning. In addition, this gives sufficient access to our farmers for fertilizing, pruning, removal of unwanted vegetation around the trees, and controlling pests. Within two to three years the trees have grown sufficiently to form a canopy, preventing grass cover on the ground, thereby eliminating competition for the trees. Firebreaks are cut around the perimeter of our farms and also at strategic locations on our lands, to reduce the risk of fire damage to our trees.
