The future is shaped by those with vision and purpose.
Florida’s agriculture community has always been the backbone on this great state. But, recent challenges in the citrus, farming, and timber industries have created circumstances that demand leadership from innovative thinkers. So, we collected a group of industry professionals and environmental scientists and decided to see what we could do to improve our economic landscape.
With the depletion of vast amounts of citrus production and the lack of reforestation in Central and South Florida, we needed to do something and do it fast. Our solution was to plant fast growing super trees that could replace the vacant unproductive acres that now lay barren.
That’s how Florida Eucalyptus was born.
Eucalyptus plantations have been grown successfully in Florida for about 4 decades. By purposely growing more trees on less acres, pristine natural areas can be preserved for future generations to enjoy.
Because we’re experts in growing and harvesting eucalyptus, you can be sure that the forest products we manufacture have been produced from sustainable sources with environmental protection at the forefront of our long-term management plans.
