At WeGrow, we place the utmost importance on ecological sustainability. This thinking applies to the management of our plantations as well. We can, for example, completely dispense with herbicides for crop management by using horizontal touch-operated mulchers. The hybrid varieties of the Kiri tree, specially bred for sustainable wood production, can reach a trunk diameter of up to 40 centimetres in Spain’s warm climate. This wooden disc comes from a 6-year-old Kiri tree from Spain. In comparison, this slice comes from a 12-year-old German Beech tree. With an average weight of only 300 kilograms per cubic metre, Kiri wood is one of the world’s lightest types of wood. Kiri timber is particularly sought after by those industries where weight-savings can lead to a cost advantage. These include ship and boat building, vehicle manufacturing for road and rail, motorhomes, caravans and other lightweight construction. Our WeGrow group of companies has specialised in the sustainable production of Kiri wood. With harvest cycles under 8 years, our sustainable Kiri plantations offer a forward-looking supply concept that brings economic benefit while protecting the environment. Healthy and sustainable growth that is what WeGrow stands for.
