In a unique partnership with local farmers and indigenous communities, Sicirec Bolivia has invested in agro-forestry plantations consisting of a range of native tree species (ArBolivia initiative) and development and execution of technical instruments such as “forest management plans” for natural forests (ArboReal iniciative).

Focused on Chiquitos comunities of Monte Verde, owners of vast forested territories in Santa Cruz, Sicirec Bolivia Ltd has implemented wood harvesting, processing and timber commercialization activities in partnership with indigenous families.

Compared to the traditional larger scale forestry businesses, Sicirec Bolivia will be a strong competitor in the market due its long-standing relationship with the small-holders, the location of its timber stands and the use of mobile sawmills and other specialist equipment specifically suited to such small scale operations.
