Eccotopia is planning a large-scale Megafolia¬© tree project with its partner Pacific Tree West.
Online PR News – 08-November-2013 – Cape Town, South Africa – Cape Town, South Africa - Julian Moses, Chief Executive Officer at South Africa based sustainable forestation company Eccotopia, Ltd. has announced that the company plans to instigate a large-scale Megafolia¬© tree project with its partner Pacific Tree West, LLC that it is hoped will accelerate the process of reclaiming barren and contaminated land for agricultural projects.
These unprecedented, larger-scale projects are also aimed at dramatically increasing the renewable resources required for ethanol fuel production. The project partnership will also plant the rapid-growing Megafolia¬© trees for more effective carbon sequestration as the inexorable industrialization of the African continent continues to gather pace.
Mr. Moses said, ‚ÄúWhile there is an undeniable abundance of land on our beloved continent, much of it is unsuitable for agricultural development and much of what is suitable has been neglected and subjected to archaic farming practices. Of course, Mother Nature takes care of these matters in the fullness of time but if Eccotopia are able to provide her with a helpful nudge courtesy of the more productive aspects of human ingenuity, we are confident she will take no offence.‚ÄĚ
The growth characteristics of the Megafolia¬© Paulownia, which is the fastest growing deciduous tree in the world, have been engineered to facilitate a broad range of uses not least of which is the phytoremediation of contaminated or barren land.
‚ÄúWhile the increased production of biofuels and timber are particularly valuable especially given the insatiable demand for fuel and housing from a flourishing and newly-empowered middle class, the agricultural benefits have reserved a special place for themselves here at Eccotopia,‚ÄĚ concluded Mr. Moses.
