Expoforest to showcase Brazilian forestry

January 30, 2018

The fourth edition of Brazil’s premier forest fair, Expoforest, takes place in April in a 200-hectare eucalyptus forest, with over 220 confirmed exhibitors.

The Brazilian forestry market is one of the few segments that do not directly reflect the country’s economic situation. Even with the threat of recession and political scandals abounding, the Brazilian forestry sector exported over US$ 7.7 billion in 2017 alone – and that is only counting pulp, paper and plywood. This figure represents an 11% growth from the previous year.

With excellent soil and climate conditions, Brazil is a key player in global forestry production. This is largely thanks to two foreign species – pine and eucalyptus – which have adapted extremely well to the country’s conditions.

The rapid growth of eucalyptus and pine species in Brazilian forestry is the result of significant research and development. In 2016, Brazil led the global forestry productivity ranking, averaging 35.7 m3/hectare per year for planted eucalyptus forests; and 30.5 m3/hectare per year for planted pine forests, according to the most relevant companies in the sector

The Expoforest Brazilian Forestry Fair was created to present this promising market to investors worldwide, as well as showcase what Brazilian silviculture does best and attract new technologies from the world’s most important timber producing countries.

The fourth edition of Expoforest takes place from 11-13 April 2018, in Santa Rita do Passa Quatro, in the state of São Paulo. The event will be held in 200-hectare cloned eucalyptus forest belonging to International Paper.

“We believe Expoforest 2018 will once again prove to be a great opportunity to gather the world’s entire timber production chain and demonstrate once and for all the sheer strengths of the forestry sector in Brazil and in the world,” says Jorge R. Malinovski, president director of Malinovski, the company behind Expoforest.

At the time of going to press, 226 companies are confirmed exhibitors at the fair. Over 30 000 visitors are expected during the three day event.

With the onset of what promises to be a cold winter, this photo provides a timely reminder of what happens to wattle trees when it snows. No! It’s not a good idea to plant wattle if snow is a possibility. The only thing you could use these broken trees for is firewood. The photo was taken near Weza a few years ago.
