About

Apical Reforestadora S.A. is a leading Panamanian reforestation company established in 2008, developing high quality teak plantations in balance with social and environmental objectives. The plantations are located in the Panama and Darién regions and total 5,300 hectares, of which 3,670 are best-in-class teak timberland. Apical has been certified under the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) since 2012, where it continues to demonstrate its commitment to responsible forest management.

Since inception, the plantations have been established on carefully selected soils, using the highest yielding genetics available. Apical has had a constant focus on the development of its clonal material, developing its own modern nursery and producing excellent quality and high yielding cuttings. The company benefits from being part of a larger teak network focused on the clonal programme, but also advanced silvicultural regimes, harvesting operations and the trading of teak. Apical Reforestadora is one of the top leading FSC® certfied teak log producers and exporters in Panama. Over the last three harvesting seasons, the company has managed to successfully export more than 10,000 cubic meters of teak logs annually. 

Over the years, Apical has developed a good knowledge and expertise throughout the whole value chain. With its own modern nursery, a large contractor base and with a growing client base, Apical has developed a superior understanding and control of the value adding operations.
