About BaumInvest

BaumInvest: A long story, a short explanation

Since the foundation of BaumInvest in 2007, we have developed step by step from a small pioneer company to a specialist in tropical mixed forest reforestation.

By now, we are in care of about 3,500 hectares of land, which is distributed over seven locations in Costa Rica.

Of this, we have already reforested 1,280 hectares for the sustainable production of tropical value timber, another 1,100 hectares are currently being reforested with mixed forest as part of a Company Carbon Forest and about 500 hectares are reserved for nature conservation.
At the same time, we have created valuable habitats with our forests: Toucans, tapirs and spider monkeys can be seen regularly.

Our History- Every expert was a beginner once.

We launched the first BaumInvest fund in 2007 to reforest fallow pastureland in inland Costa Rica with native precious woods. The concept was so popular that we launched two more funds in 2009 and 2013, growing to around 2,000 shareholders.

The original economic planning of these funds differed from our current one. The necessary mathematical assumption was that the precious woods and land would be sold after a final clearcut – with corresponding distributions for the shareholders. However, it was clear from the very beginning, even among the shareholders, that BaumInvest wanted to establish itself as a permanent, long-term project and that the predicted clearcut was no longer an option.

In August 2018, after successful afforestation in all three funds, our shareholders decided to merge them into the non-listed BaumInvest AG – a milestone for the establishment and expansion of our business areas based on the afforestation of mixed forests: Sustainable Forestry and Carbon Compensation through Afforestation.
