Our Accountability

Our Budget

We are posting a 6 year projected budget, including maximum salary of the manager. Our goal is to have salaries and overhead under 25% of total income, with 75% or more dedicated to planting and maintaining the trees.

These figures are based on our study of the plantation industry over a 15 year period and go way beyond the cost to just plant a tree and walk away. The first 5 years of maintenance and weed suppression are critical factors to ensuring tree survival and growth, and we will need to have a big emphasis on collecting all data relating to this very important 5 year period. Our budget will be adjusted as our true income and costs are actualized during the first year.

What we see happening in 50 years .

We are looking to a future where in 50 years there are a series of plantations growing endangered species and producing not just a high quality timber product, but also a better forestry alternative. We want Agro Forestry plantations, with multiple species and various agricultural products growing with the timber trees.

We want to create a model that can be copied by small individuals and by larger companies. Countries like China that have a huge demand for these species will hopefully come on board early as we develop and data required to have long term success growing these trees. We hope that by creating the data needed to show how and where these species can grow will inspire others to follow our path.

The directors at Grown Forward are committed to having a transparent plan regarding the finances of the company. We will post our budgets and financial statements online for everyone to see and will operate under the legal guidelines of a Not-for-Profit, registered in the province of Ontario, Canada. Each plantation may operate under different arrangements and we will have the terms of tree ownership and sales listed online for each plantation as they are started.
