Estancia Silvopastoril

Impact Story



Impact story: Estancia Silvopastoril

Average mid-sized farm with about 1,000-5,0000 ha, where land owner wished to maintain livestock production on areas deforested decades ago
Large part of pure beef production on implanted pastures was converted into a mixed silvo-pastoral system, adjusting both livestock and tree densities to allow for both
Regular seasonal income from beef combined with long term revenue from biomass and timber offers attractive economic buffer against commodity price shocks as well as climate related yield loss
Land owner remains in control of beef production while timber plantation management is contracted to a third party expert company under a benefit sharing agreement
