Viveiros Aliança
forest nursery
  • At Viveiros Aliança, Eucalyptus globulus plants are grown for paper (main crop).
  • The nursery is located on the Espirra Estate, a vast agricultural and forest space covering 1,700 hectares, with Eucalyptus globulus plantations, vines, cork oaks and stone pines.
The Navigator Company’s forest management model:
  • Identification of conservation zones protecting valuable habitats and species;
  • Cooperation with national NGOs for the conservation of threatened species such as the Bonelli’s Eagle and the Great Bustard;
  • Creation of protective buffer zones around watercourses;
  • Preservation and enhancement of wildlife corridors;
  • Promotion of structural diversity by creating a mosaic at landscape level;
  • The Navigator Company has also been involved in several national and international projects to promote the preservation of biodiversity.
Managed Forests
  • Together with modern and certified production facilities, our FSC® and PEFC forest management certifications ensure our commitment to environmental protection and guarantee that all the wood used for the production of pulp originates from controlled sources.
  • Typically, Eucalyptus globulus trees are felled after 12 years. Maintaining a responsible forest management model means that the net amount of wood is kept every year. In fact, that quantity increases, since more trees are planted than those used for pulp making. Oaks, stone pines and ornamental plants can also be found in our forest nursery.
