Forestry

Trees are the foundation of our business, which is why we take care of our raw material source with great responsibility. The result of this is that we have become the global benchmark in forest management, preserving around 216,000 hectares of native forests in our forest areas.

Raw Material

With 239,000 hectares of planted pine and eucalyptus forests in the states of Paraná, Santa Catarina and São Paulo, we were the first pulp and paper company in the Americas to have the origin of the raw material used for manufacturing our products certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®). In addition to supplying the raw material to Klabin for pulp and paper production, our Forestry Unit is also the leading seller of timber logs to sawmills and planer mills, serving the furniture and construction markets.

Forest Management

We are committed to sustainable development and mosaic planting is our trademark: it is a system that blends areas of preserved native forests, which amount to almost half of our forest area, with planted pine and eucalyptus forests of different ages. Such management helps to protect natural resources, improves the production potential of forests and helps preserve biodiversity through ecological corridors that help hundreds of species of wild animals to move about.

Forestry Competitiveness

Forestry Innovation

We have an environment that is open to new ideas, offering opportunities for testing and implementing projects in the field.

Average Forest x Mill Radius

The forests are located near the mills, which ensures less time for supplying wood.

Forest Logistics

Our trucks are designed specifically for the forestry business. This results in lower maintenance costs and low fuel consumption, reducing CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.

Forestry Logistics Center

Nothing goes unnoticed. The fleet of trucks is monitored in real time on a 24x7 basis, making sure that each kilometer is optimized.

Forest Monitoring System

The productivity of the operation is monitored in real time through drones or satellite. This technology helps prevent pests, diseases and potential forest fires.

Continuous modernization of harvesting equipment

Operators trained in cutting-edge simulators work on state-of-the-art forest harvest machinery, which results in greater speed and safety at work.

Genetic Improvement

Cross breeding among species and developing clones in labs help maintain a high-density pine and eucalyptus wood.

Our forestry commitment

Klabin’s commitment to responsible forest management, together with the various initiatives aimed at environmental preservation and social responsibility, is attested by our certifications.
