Asia Plantation Capital
Forestry in Thailand has always been about more than basic tree management. The country’s Royal Forestry Department (Krom Pa Mai, RFD), established in 1896, dates back to a time of great political and social change in what was then Siam. Its creation reflected Siam’s need to demonstrate to European powers (and to European logging companies) its ability to provide bureaucratic order. Not coincidentally, the department’s first head was a British forestry officer. In keeping with the policy, Asia Plantation Capital prides itself on creating sustainable employment in areas where previously there were few opportunities for the hard working farm and plantation workers. Our workers now have sustainable employment throughout their working lives. As well as our forestry plantations being sustainable, we also strive to improve living and general conditions for our workers and their families.
The rapid expansion within the Asia Plantation Capital forestry division has resulted in over 130 total plantations in Thailand, with many more to follow.
These are all fledgling plantations that have been created from prime agricultural freehold land. The very consistent growth patterns being observed are a testament to the Aquilaria Crassna (agarwood) trees’ suitability to, and enjoyment of, this very fertile part of Thailand.
