The most part of the product of the harvest is wood to make
cellulose. There are in my region 3 big cellulose industries
(Aracruz Celulose S.A., BahiaSul Celulose S.A. and Veracel
Celulose S.A.) that buy all the production of the farmers.
The last one, Veracel is an association between the Aracruz
Cellulose (50%) and the Swedish-Finnish Stora Enso (50%)
that produces white cellulose of eucalyptus, and it is one
of the biggests of the world, with annual capacity of 900 a
thousand tons of cellulose.The Veracel has 70 a thousand
hectares of own plantatio of eucalyptus.
Eucalypts ( Eucalyptus spp) is a native plant from
Australia, introduced in Brasil by an agronomist in early
1900. The brasilian paper and pulp industries are based on
eucalypts short fiber cellullosis, which Brazil is the
greatest producer in the world. The eucalypts based
silviculture is booming now and using a large amout of

why ar those Zebu's there?
The zebu (known as Nelore in Brazil or Ongole in India)
cattle is in the photo because that is as Silvipastoral
agroforestry sistem, where trees have a larger area (40 sq.
m./each instead of 7,5 sq. m per tree in the usual sistem).
So, in the same area you can get two products: wood and
meat, with benefits to the environment and cash. A good farm
in our region has, at least, one thousand hectares, usually
more, as the land is not so fertile as other regions which
grains are the main products.
