Responsible forestry

Catapu which incorporates our forest concession, sawmill, turning division and also hosts M’phingwe  is in the Miombo Woodlands of Central Mozambique which are a rich and diverse natural resource.

In order to ensure the sustainable utilization of the natural resources TCT-Dalmann initiated a comprehensive forest management and reforestation program in 1999. This initiative combines all aspects of forest management, including promoting of natural regeneration, coppice management, reforesting at a ratio of four trees replanted for every one extracted, fire defences, involvement of the local communities as stakeholders and the policy of adding value to all forest resources through furniture production. The concept of “forest to furniture” plays a pivotal role in the company’s integrated management plan. For full details please contact us by email.
