Introducing the Teak Plantations Costa Rica Project:
A Dual Proof-of-Concept Investment Opportunity
We are proud to present the Teak Plantations Costa Rica Project, an innovative investment opportunity that serves both forestry-oriented investors and lessees. This project combines land acquisition with personalized leasing, providing a secure and predictable return while significantly mitigating risk. Investors can expect attractive returns from the sale of Teakwood, which presents a conservative yet renewed avenue for investment.
Embracing “Ecology and economy hand-in-hand.”
Our philosophy is one of the requirements for the successful transformation from industrial exploitation to a life-friendly future. Climate and fairness, social responsibility and growth, innovation and the future – they all have one thing in common: they must be nurtured and cared for. We see ourselves as a driving part of society, taking responsibility today for tomorrow. We are committed to tackling this marathon and invite you to join us on the exciting road to a healthy future.
We are actively working towards obtaining FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certification. These certifications ensure sustainable forest management, promoting the economic, ecological, and social aspects of forestry.

Possible Future Teak Price Projections*
The volume of wood that can be obtained from a teak tree can vary widely, depending on various factors such as genetics, growing conditions, and how it has been managed over time. On average, a teak tree takes
Assuming the price of teak will range between USD 1000 and USD 1500 per cubic meter, a plot with 10 trees has a potential revenue of a minimum of USD 3,150 (0.315 cubic meter per tree) respectively USD 10,000 (1 cubic meter per tree) on the lower end; on the higher end, a plot with 10 trees has a potential revenue of a minimum of USD 4,725.00 (0.315 cubic meter per tree) respectively USD 15,000.00 (1 cubic meter per tree). **
A plot with 10 teak trees, 20 years old, has an average revenue expectancy of 0.6475 cubic meters per tree. At the current average price of USD 1,225.00 per cubic meter, each tree has the potential to generate approximately USD 793.19, totalling USD 7931.90.
It should also be taken into consideration, that 25% of trees might not survive the 20 year growth period.
The leasing price for a section with 10 teak trees is USD 2,000.00 over the period of 20 years, payable up front. Considering the calculations above, this plot is expected to generate on average approximately USD 11,897.81 in harvest revenue.
During the first 20 years of its life, a teak tree can sequester between 500 kg and 1,500 kg of CO2, depending on various factors such as climate, soil conditions, and management practices. Proper growth conditions and maintenance practices are essential for optimal CO2 sequestration rates. Teak trees continue to sequester carbon throughout their lifetime, albeit at a slower rate after reaching maturity.
Example: CO2-Offsetting for a Gulfstream G650
The amount of CO2 produced for example by a Gulfstream G650 per flight hour can vary depending on various factors, such as the load of the aircraft, the distance traveled, and weather conditions. However, according to some estimates, a Gulfstream G650 can produce around 1,250 kilograms (1.25 metric tons) of CO2 per hour of flight time.
To calculate the number of teak trees required to compensate for the CO2 emissions of a Gulfstream G650 for 100 hours of flight time, we need to know the total amount of CO2 emissions from the aircraft for this period.
Using the estimate, that a Gulfstream G650 produces approximately 1,250 kg of CO2 per hour of flight time, we can calculate the total CO2 emissions for 100 hours of flight time as follows:
Total CO2 emissions = CO2 emissions per hour x number of flight hours Total CO2 emissions = 1,250 kg/hour x 100 hours
Total CO2 emissions = 125,000 kg or 125 metric tons.
Now, to compensate for the CO2 emissions of the G650 for 100 hours of flight time, we need to sequester an equivalent amount of CO2 by planting trees. The amount of CO2 sequestered by a teak tree over its lifetime can vary, but on average, a mature teak tree can sequester around 50 kg of CO2 per year.
Assuming that the teak trees are planted and maintained properly and have optimal growing conditions, we can calculate the number of trees needed to compensate for the CO2 emissions of a G650 for 100 hours of flight time as follows:
Number of trees required = Total CO2 emissions / CO2 sequestered per tree per year
Number of trees required = 125,000 kg / (50 kg/tree/year x 20 years)
Number of trees required = 125,000 kg / 1,000 kg/tree
Number of trees required = 125 trees
Therefore, approximately 125 teak trees would need to be planted and maintained for 20 years to compensate for the CO2 emissions of a Gulfstream G650 for 100 hours of flight time. It’s important to note that this is just an estimate and actual CO2 sequestration rates can vary based on several factors such as soil conditions, climate, tree species, and maintenance practices.
Costa Rica is the perfect country for our goals.
Costa Rica is considered one of the most progressive in Latin America. The country has one of the highest biodiversity densities and environmental protection requirements in the world and is called the “Switzerland of Central America”. This is not only because the landscape is reminiscent of Switzerland, but also because the political stability, the neutrality (without its own military) and the economic prosperity allow the comparison.
In international comparison, Costa Rica stands out for its successful political and economic transformation. Unlike many other countries in the region, it has been a stable democracy since the 1950s and was spared the problems of social unrest, civil wars and dictatorship that were widespread in 20th century Latin America through early sociopolitical measures. Faced with armed conflicts in neighbouring countries at the time, it declared its “permanent and active unarmed neutrality” in 1983.
Climate protection, nature conservation and forest protection are considered important components of the state’s environmental policy and are consistently implemented. About 27% of Costa Rica‘s land area is protected. In 2012, there were 160 protected areas such as biological reserves, national parks and nature reserves. An important basis of the states environmental policy what is the “Peace with Nature Initiative” of President Oscar Arias, with which he wanted to put a radical end to environmental destruction. The law was passed in December 2007. Arias declared in 2007 that by 2021, Costa Rica is 200th birthday, the country would be the first on Earth to achieve a balanced footprint in emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. Nearly 100% of its energy needs are generated from renewable sources. In 2011, former German President Christian Wulff described the country as an ecological role model during his state visit to Costa Rica.

thus practically all investors, according to their financial possibilities, make an investment in the future and benefit from the expected increase in prices, by the sale of the trees on their plots.
Each plot is individually numbered and shows the number of seedlings planted.
All leases are registered in the tree register, regardless of whether you pay for the lease in the traditional way by bank transfer or purchase it as NFT.
The teak tree (Tectona grandis) is a fast-growing tropical species known for its valuable wood and aesthetic appeal. Reaching an average height of 40 meters (131 feet) with branch-free trunks up to 24 meters (80 feet), teak trees epitomize elegance and strength.
Teak heartwood possesses exceptional durability, making it the preferred material for outdoor furniture. This resilience stems from secondary plant compounds that repel fungal and insect attacks. Furthermore, the high silicone content enhances resistance to termite infestation, borers, and fires. Even without treatment, teak wood remains remarkably durable.
The demand for plantation teak exceeds the available supply several times over. While teak is widely used in furniture construction, exterior applications and shipbuilding, its sustainable energy-saving benefits in architecture are gaining recognition.
Costa Rica’s democratic tradition indicates long-term political and economic stability. The landscape and climate are very close to the natural distribution areas of the teak tree, which is reflected in the quality of the wood.
No, the property was used for cattle ranching before we had ownership. Costa Rica is a world leader in nature and environmental protection, which saves the entire rainforest from deforestation.
Due to the high natural silicone concentration in the bark, the teak tree is exceptionally fire resistant.
Fun Fact: In Africa, teak trees are therefore even grown as a protective belt around fire sensitive plantations.
For safety reasons we asked for an early registration so that we can provide you with a guide. After completion of the eco-lodges it will also be possible to book overnight stays at the plantation.
Analysis by the Indufor Consulting Group, forecasts by the International Forestry Review, the UN’s FAO and the HWWI report “Climate Change – Strategy 2030” predict that prices for wood as a raw material are facing a sustained upward trend.
A retrospective analysis shows that investments in wood generate average returns of over 12% to 15% with lower risk than traditional investment classes.
Each tenant will receive detailed written documentation of tree development and growth on an annual basis.
In principle, you can offer your lease for sale on the OpenSea.io platform as an NFT at any time.
Of course it is possible to give away your lease.
For your convenience, the transfer application is attached to each lease agreement, documenting the lease transfer in the tree registry.
After the second rotation, approx. 40 years, the landowners in tend to reforest the plantation with rain forest groves and to use it for ecotourism.
Employment at the plantation and the eco-lodges are reserved for local employees.
