Sustainable Forestry Plantations Can Turn into a Way to Save the Brazilian Rainforest

A growing number of investors are exploring the potential of sustainable forestry plantations in Brazil, claims UK-based information portal (http://www.timberinvestments.co/). As the popularity of forestry and timber investments in Brazil is growing, it might turn into a way to further reduce the deforestation rates in the country.

 Recently, the Brazilian Ministry of Environment announced data showing a decrease in the deforestation rates in the Amazon during the past couple of months. Timberinvestments.co, an investment portal, operated by green investments media Dezz, looks into the positive effects that sustainable forestry management has on the reduction of deforestation of native forests in the country.
According to timberinvestments.co, forestry and timber investments have become particularly attractive for European investors as a stable asset in the present times of financial insecurity. Timberinvestments.co’s article looks into the economic factors behind the growing popularity of sustainable forestry in emerging economies such as Brazil, where it can also have the added benefit of helping reduce the effects of deforestation and illegal logging.
Timberinvestments.co provides information about the deforestation problem in Brazil that reached huge proportions between 2000 and 2010. Therefore, in the last few years, the Brazilian Government has invested a lot of efforts in reducing deforestation rates, which has resulted in a positive trend in 2011. In particular, the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) has helped reduce deforestation levels during the past couple of months through its Real Time Deforestation Detection System. In addition, the Government is taking measures to more effectively enforce its deforestation reduction policy through shutting down illegal sawmills and seizing illegal timber and vehicles. Despite all those efforts, however, the problem with deforestation and illegal logging still remains a very serious issue in the country.
Therefore, timberinvestments.co also reviews the approach of promoting sustainable forestry as an alternative to illegal logging. In short, the planting and replanting of trees in a sustainable manner can make up for the cutting of trees for timber, and thus, forestry and timber investments turn into an ethical as well as profitable enterprise. In addition, eco-minded companies can further contribute to the welfare of indigenous populations through improving the infrastructure and creating job opportunities. 
Timberinvestments.co provides information about the most popular tree species for sustainable forestry plantations in Brazil. The growing demand for teak and the general popularity of eucalyptus as a fast-growing species are among the factors making these two types of trees the preferred choices of investors. Timberinvestments.co, however, also looks into the possibilities for growing less popular tree species, with the help of a database, developed by the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources. The database, which is aimed at promoting lesser known tree species, could help potential investors to select the most appropriate type of tree for their forest plantation, without limiting themselves to the most popular tree choices. 
In addition, timberinvestments.co’s article analyses the prospects of sustainable forestry as an alternative to agriculture. Since agriculture is considered to be among the major reasons for deforestation, the profits of sustainable forestry might encourage Brazilian farmers to diversify the use of their farmland by growing a forest plantation. 
Therefore, if combined with the appropriate government measures, sustainable forestry and timber investments can be a way to effectively solve the problem with deforestation in the Brazilian rainforest.
