This is a 15 Acre commercial forest investment project for sale in Malindi in Chakama, 45km from Malindi town on the c103, fully tarmacked Tsavo-Malindi road.
The farm is only 2.5km from the tarmac on a good all-weather toad. It is fully panted and fenced.
The farm is subdivided into 14 1 acre parcels with individual access fully planted with 425 Gmelina Arborea trees.
The Gmelina Arborea is a fast-growing soft hardwood tree. Specifically suited for altitudes from sea level to 1,500 metres above sea level, is a perfect tree to grow for quick returns in Malindi.
The growth of the species is remarkably fast and on good sites can reach 20 m height in 5 years. The tree attains more than 30 m in height with about 60 cm dbh at maturity. The form of the tree is fair to good, with 6–9 m of clear bole. Some trees can reach 3 m after a year from planting and 20 m after 4.5 years.
The trees will be ready for harvesting in 7 years, with each tree producing timber worth a minimum of Ksh.5,000 in the current market.
The 1-acre units are selling for an introductory offer of Ksh.395,000 for the first 5 acres. Each unit comes beaconed, fully planted and with a clean freehold title deed.
