The Business of Growing Trees: A Growing Investment Opportunity

Brinkman’s forest restoration work has been profiled in a new report released Jan 18th 2018 by World Resources Institute (WRI) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) on the Restoration Economy. The new report, titled The Business of Planting Trees: A Growing Investment Opportunity, shows that “restoring degraded and deforested lands is not only a boon for the environment, but a lucrative opportunity for investors and entrepreneurs. WRI and TNC looked at hundreds of companies – tech startups, consumer goods companies, timber producers, etc. – and selected 14 enterprises to highlight from around the world.”

Having been in “The Business of Planting Trees” for nearing 50 years, it is an honour for us at Brinkman to have been selected as one of 14 leading examples across the globe of successful business in the land restoration economy, and one of only 2 companies showcased as “a ‘one-stop shop’ for restoration” in the Project Management section. The Brinkman profile showcases treeplanting projects across Canada, carbon offset projects in BC, and native species hardwood plantation management projects in Central America, as pointed examples of the various land restoration project types our team of skilled managers have delivered.

With over 1.4 billion trees planted and over a million hectares restored, having our hands in the soil across this time has taught us how each natural system works together uniquely, supporting and enriching its human communities. Without stewardship, without balance between people and the biosphere, there is no economy. We've learned how to plant a sapling – or an idea – so its roots grow strong and deep.
