The Red Grandis Story
The 27,000 hectare Urufor plantation is in the north-east of Uruguay and has been devoted to the development of Red Grandis since 1989. A 20 year growing cycle ensures a good yield of large diameter logs with no natural defects. Due to the local soil condition, climate and investments in road improvement, tree harvesting can be carried out all year round.
