Forest and Raw Material
Araupel manages approximately 35.583,12 acres of forests planted with Pine taeda, Eucalyptus grandis and Araucaria angustifolia whose material supports the industry. More than two million tree seedlings are grown in our own nursery every year for reforestation. The plantations are distributed throughout the cities of Rio Bonito do Iguaçu, Nova Laranjeiras, Espigão Alto do Iguaçu and Quedas do Iguaçu, where one of industrial branch is.
From planting to harvesting, all stages of the production process are done aiming at production maximization, raw material quality development and natural forest preservation. Araupel allows and participates in several university researches whose objective is to analyze and put into practice new planting and harvesting techniques, studies that enable planting new forests with less impact on soil, erosion and loss of humidity, favoring nutritional return to new trees.
