Firm to plant 10M eucalyptus trees in Kratie, Stung Treng

Think Biotech (Cambodia) Co Ltd plans to plant 10 million eucalyptus trees on nearly 10,000ha in Kratie and Stung Treng provinces from May to August this year and is also looking for partners to plant more trees, according to the company’s report seen by the The Post on May 24.

Think Biotech director Lu Chu Chang said the 10 million trees on 8,500ha is part of the first phase of the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2025, when about 100 million to 120 million trees on 100,000ha are expected.

“The company has increased the number of trees planted in 2021 to 10 million and will increase numbers next year to meet market demand for timber in Cambodia’s wood processing industry, where there is great demand, especially in the construction sector,” Chu Chang said.

According to Chu Chang, from 2018 to 2020, the company had already planted about 3.6 million trees.
