Ecoforests reaches a milestone and launches a sister company : Quinguz Teak EcoHomes.

EcoForests,  has launched a sister company: QuinGuz Teak EcoHomes. QuinGuz Teak EcoHomes designs and sells pre-built teak homes and other products that are later shipped worldwide. The variety in designs and customization of products ensure deman  d for the teak and offers EcoForests additional control over the price at which teak from their plantations is sold, resulting in an upside benefit for investors. QuinGuz Teak EcoHomes has the advantage of an assurance in the quality and supply of teak; EcoForests is committed to producing quality timber throughout each step of the growth cycle, from planting until the harvesting, and most recently, securing demand for their own product.


The EcoHomes are designed by award-winning Chilean architect, Victor, Hugo Guzman. As with EcoForests, customers who chose QuinGuz Teak EcoHomes can be assured that they are working with a company with a commitment to the environment and sustainable practices.





This next step towards further vertical integration demonstrates the commitment of EcoForests to obtain the highest price for their teak to ensure investors are getting the highest returns on their investments. This pair of companies is well poised to deliver exactly what their customers and investors demand and have come to expect.

Canada Exports to China in 2013
Canada's Log Export to China 2012-1013

Seattle, USA. China's hunger for wood was less acute in 2012 than in the previous year. In particular, importation of softwood logs fell substantially from the record levels of 2011. Importation of lumber was also lower in 2012, but the decline was much less than that of logs. The biggest changes in log and lumber imports between 2011 and 2012 were the sharp decline of Russian log volumes crossing the Chinese border and the reduced lumber shipments from the US to Chinese ports, as reported in the Wood Resource Quarterly. During the first four months of 2013, import volumes of both logs and lumber picked up and were 12 percent and 19 percent higher, respectively, than in the same period in 2012.
