Tell me, how many of you have secretly wished for a money growing tree? The truth is all of us did at some point of our life. If only we knew then that some plant species can actually fulfil our wish. Excited yet?
Melia Dubia is the fastest growing forestry species among timber varieties on Earth. Belonging to the Meliaceae family, this species is native to India, Australia and South East Asia, where this is a primary source of firewood. The Melia Dubia tree logs are used for making plywood which is used for making furniture, doors and windows. However, the growth and maturity of the trees determine its area of usage.
Additionally, the timber has been found useful in the making of:
• Matchbox sticks
• Photo frames
Can you assess the monetary gains now? That’s not all! The tree has medicinal properties and serves food for the cattle too.
Melia Dubia has a life cycle of 5-7 years. The tree starts generating revenue from the age of 2 years when it can be sold to matchbox and paper industries. Upon maturity, the tree can be sold to Veneers and Plywood industry. Income from this ‘Miracle Tree’ multiplies with its age. Experts from the Indian Plywood Industries Research and Training Institute (IPIRTI) have also supported the need for growing Melia Dubia Trees.
All said and done, choice of Melia Dubia seedlings is extremely essential for hale and hearty growth. Don’t worry! We at AGROCORP can help you with all aspects of this investment from planning to cultivation through to sell of trees. For details, please feel free to contact us.
