Business Areas

In which areas is
BaumInvest AG active?

Our two business areas are sustainable forestry and carbon compensation. Both are based on the reforestation of degraded pastureland. For this purpose, we plant mainly native tree species in order to create a near-natural mixed forest.

It is important to us that our areas are adjacent to nature reserves in order to connect biodiversity corridors and to promote natural regeneration.

Sustainable Forestry

The right solution to the demand for sustainably produced, high-value tropical timber.

Our timber production covers approximately 1,280 hectares of sustainably managed mixed forest at five sites in northern Costa Rica. Our “Sustainable Forestry” concept combines fast-growing, shade-producing pioneer tree species, such as Cebo or Botarrama, with high-quality value timber species, such as Almendro, Pilon or Guapinol.

 

 

This is how the BaumInvest Forestry model works

This allows optimal conditions for tree growth of the quality wood in the first years and at the same time increases biodiversity – a sustainable and economic system with a future.
In our sustainably managed mixed forests, harvesting is a selective process and replanting is a continuous effort. In Costa Rica, these high-value timber species require approximately 30-35 years to reach harvest maturity.

The result: continuously growing value woods from a permanent and sustainable forest management system.

Carbon Compensation:

An essential and natural way to remove climate-damaging carbon from the atmosphere.

BaumInvest AG produces and sells CO2 Certificates on the voluntary market for carbon compensation – especially to companies that want to offset unavoidable carbon emissions. The carbon storage capacity of our forests is confirmed in the form of CO2 certificates via a certification process according to the internationally recognized Gold Standard. Since 2007, BaumInvest AG has sequestered a total of 175,000t of carbon in its forest areas.

Since 2021, BaumInvest AG has also offered corporate customers the opportunity to invest in forest climate protection projects for their own compensation of emissions. In doing so, we reforest so-called Company Carbon Forests on behalf of our customers. Our innovative planting concept – with native tree species and accompanying vegetation to protect the tree seedlings – is the basis for the creation of a near-natural mixed forest. In addition to carbon sequestration, this supports other positive effects such as the preservation and increase of biodiversity, the creation of jobs as well as the reactivation of soil life, and the storage of water.

We are currently implementing the first Company Carbon Forest project within Gold Standard’s newly created “Program of Activity” mechanism for two corporate clients on a reforestation area of more than 1,000 hectares in Costa Rica.

The demand for natural carbon offset solutions is currently increasing significantly due to ambitious climate protection targets of most European companies. We see a large growth market in this area.
