Sustainable Forest Plantations

  • We plant Cadamba, a tree native to South Asia
  • Fast Growing Tropical Light Hardwood
  • Cadamba wood can be used in a variety of applications

Capital Hive develop sustainable forest plantations that will consistently produce timber year-round for decades to come. These forest plantations comprise a fast-growing light tropical hardwood, Neolamarckia cadamba (“Cadamba”), which is native to and increasingly planted across South Asia.

With a continually need for sustainable and environment friendly timber, driven by rapid population growth and the increasing threat of climate change, the search for a sustainable solution becomes particularly Important. Sustainable tropical timber has numerous applications, from low-value applications like high grade biomass to very high value tropical veneer for the plywood industry.

Forests provide a number of environmental benefits including carbon sequestration and water management.

We acquire a degraded forestry concession and develop it by replanting and Implementing strong systems to convert the forest plantation into a steady cash generating asset.

Capital Hive’s forestry team comprises a number of highly experienced individuals who between them have more than 100 years of forestry management and related experience. Key team members have experience handling timber plantations in Asia and have worked under other private equity funds in developing timber plantations that have met the stringent FSC and PEFC standards.

Uses of Cadamba Wood

Cadamba wood is commonly used in the variety of applications such as ceiling boards, light construction material, plywood, veneer, pencil making, match splints, pulpwood for paper, packing cases, crates, etc. When properly seasoned and treated, Cadamba wood is also used for furniture, flooring, toys, tea-chests, carvings, etc.

The tree as a whole is also suitable for aesthetic purposes and as a result, is often planted along roadsides. The fruits, leaves, seeds, and bark have extensive medicinal properties. The root bark is also used for natural yellow dye.

Due to the self-pruning nature of Cadamba, it has heavy leaf shedding properties which increases the organic carbon in the soil. The fresh leaves are often mixed with animal feed, whilst the fruits and inflorescences are also reportedly edible. The scented orange flowers attract honey bees as pollinators, moreover, they are an important raw material used in the Indian perfumes with sandalwood as a base and a good bee forage in apiculture. The species is also considered suitable for soil conservation, agroforestry, slash-and-burn land reclamation, etc.



At Capital Hive, we strongly believe in sustainable forestry management and development which are essential for long-term business development, the environment, people’s lives, and their livelihood. Therefore, it is important to maintain and enhance our planet’s forest resources if we are to succeed in the global efforts to mitigate climate change, address biodiversity loss and water scarcity, and to alleviate poverty. All projects undertaken by Capital Hive adhere to the International Finance Corporation (IFC)’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Performance Standards throughout the life of the investment.

How is harvesting planted trees considered Sustainable?

Oil and Coal are burned to produce energy that runs our vehicles, homes and everyday life. The problem is once these fuels are burnt, they produce large amounts of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) that is released into the air.

When a tree grows, it consumes CO2 from the atmosphere. The very carbon we release into the air helps trees grow. The carbon is consumed by the tree and it becomes part of the tree. This is called Carbon Sequestration (the long term storage of Carbon).

In simple terms, trees capture and encases carbon in its trunk, branches, leaves and roots. This is why the process of growing a tree for sustainable timber or biomass fuel is considered green and sustainable.

By harvesting and replacing a tree every time one is harvested, a sustainable timber plantation becomes a major carbon sink, continuously capturing carbon and producing life giving oxygen.
