Forest management planning

In accordance with its voluntary policy of responsible forest management, the group is implementing forest management plans on all its concessions. These plans meet requirements at three levels: preservation of the ecosystem and the biodiversity, social progress for workers and their families and the respect of local populations and their traditional forest practices. This approach is not only a way to comply with the Gabonese forest code but also a true management tool with a long-term perspective on timber production in order to avoid the impacts of harvesting on the forest’s ability to regenerate (average harvesting intensity: 1 to 2 trees per ha every 30 years). In Congo, Mokabi is licence holder of a FMU (Forest Management Unit) called Mokabi-Dzanga.
