In terms of the products harvested from this plantation, which include slats, droppers and fencing poles, the rotation is between 1 year and 4 years. It is well known that this area produces good yields per hectare in view of the deep soils and that it is in a sub-tropical area with a high rainfall.

3200 Eucalyptus grandis trees are planted per hectare, due to the fact that the sizes of the trees related to the products that they are harvested for, are much smaller.

The Plantations are spread over the farm into numerous and various sized compartments.
