With a focus on the southern half of the state and part of the Sierra, Tanac offers benefits and financing options for the planting of Black Wattle – an environmentally responsible business opportunity and a sustainable source of long-term income

Tanac has just launched its 2023 Forest Development Program. The company from Rio Grande do Sul, with operations in Montenegro, Pelotas, Rio Grande and Triunfo, as well as a forest base present in more than 20 municipalities, wants to increase the planting of Black Wattle in Rio Grande do Sul. For this, it offers several financing options to rural producers, so that they can afford the cost and investment, having in return the guarantee of purchase of this forest production by Tanac.

It is possible to obtain revenue through the wood logs, which can be used in various applications as raw material for cellulose, biomass, charcoal and pellets for electric power plants. In addition, the tree bark is the main source for the production of tannins, a chemical specialty, with the most diverse applications, among them: leather tanning, oils and greases separation, water treatment plants, animal nutrition and other specialties.

Advantages to Black Wattle

The Black Wattle is a tree that originated in Australia, in the geographic region of the 30th parallel, which coincides with the region of operation of Tanac in Rio Grande do Sul. The species adapts very well to the climate and temperature of the state. The acacia cycle varies between 6 and 8 years, which is the return time of the invested capital. In general, the percentage of return from the sale of a standing forest varies between 40% and 60% of the amount invested.

Because it is a species of the legume family, the Black Wattle has the ability to absorb atmospheric nitrogen and fix to the soil around 200 to 300 kg / ha / year. Therefore, it is considered a tree of good characteristic for the recovery of soils. In addition, the planting of Acacia allows, already in the second year, the integration with livestock – which can extend throughout the entire cycle, due to the formation of the canopy is not totally dark, allowing the growth of the understory, in addition to facilitating the free trance of wild animals.

Forestry activities and the environment Forests provide a wide range of benefits, including carbon absorption, biodiversity protection, sustainable bark and timber production, and the possibility of crop-livestock integration. In this sense, those who plant forests contribute to the neutralization of CO2 – one of the main agendas of the global agenda today. Forestry activities are, therefore, a valuable asset for society, for current and future generations, acting positively on issues such as: climate change mitigation, biodiversity conservation, water resources and pollination.

Plan for qualification and development of the planted forest sector
