Integrating trees and shrubs with open-space agriculture, agroforestry provides multiple purposes
and benefits. A worldwide practice that has been around since the very first farming efforts, years
ago agroforestry was replaced with monoculture farming. Today, there is fresh interest and
attention in both the developing and developed countries of the world with GWD Forestry at the
forefront of this movement.
Agroforestry provides many environmental, economic and social benefits. Trees can be a crop that
are harvested for the fruits, nuts or wood. Trees can even be harvested for oil, and they can be
planted alongside other crops. This helps landowners earn a steady income and allows them to
diversify their sources of income, ensuring that if one crop is affected another will offer financial
More than a financial benefit, agroforestry can also provide an environmental benefit. As more trees
are cut down, it impacts the level of CO2 in the atmosphere and this, in turn, causes issues with
global warming to increase. Planting more trees helps to both provide shade for crops in hotter
climates and reduce the levels of C02 in the atmosphere. The Paris Agreement is aiming to reduce
the global temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius and movements such as Agroforestry will be
crucial in achieving this goal.

and an evolving technological industry. There is great potential for growth here in both the short and
the long term.
With 400 million hectares of forestry, Canada is home of the Christmas Tree project. 3 to 6 million
Christmas trees are produced in Canada annually due to the country’s perfect environment for
growth. Bordering on the US, it’s the perfect place to cater to the massive demand for trees like this.
Canada is also home to the Poplar Biomass Project.
Home to the Black Perigord Truffle Project, an income-based opportunity, Spain is the third location
of GWD Forestry projects. Over the last 100 years, the Black Perigord Truffles supply has greatly
diminished, however, the demand for them has never been higher. Believed to be a market worth
$40 million, Spain, is the top supplier for these truffles. The country has 1700 hectares of fertile land.

GWD Forestry’s Current Projects
GWD currently offers investors the opportunity to buy a part of 8 incredible projects. These include
projects that are short-term, capital growth, annual income and income based. This is part of what
separates the projects GWD Forestry offers from other agroforestry companies. According to
experts, investors who buy into an agroforestry project that has not yet been developed will need
wait up to seven years to see any return on their investment.
Clients of GWD can choose between a variety of different projects, some of which can provide
returns incredibly quickly while others will offer annual benefits. Clients can also choose where they
want to invest based on the project they choose from Spain to Canada and Brazil. Each project
impacts and forms a part of different economies from the truffle food industry to the hardwood
manufacturing sector. As such, clients can select the project that they are most interested in.
Visiting the countries, clients can even head down to the project site, receiving on hand information
about the project and how it is progressing. With exciting opportunities already available and more
on the horizon, there has never been a better time to get involved in agroforestry development with
GWD. Utilizing global demand, the company is keen to provide their clients with projects that will
deliver incredible, lucrative returns.
With a range of different project species to consider, clients can contact GWD Forestry and learn
more about each project before they make their selection. Once a project is fully subscribed, the
company is unable to take on new investors, so it is beneficial to act quickly and claim a percentage
of a project that they are interested in.
A Fresh Opportunity To Shape The Future
Operating for nearly ten years, GWD Forestry is constantly growing and has a clear vision for the
future. The company is continuously researching using a team of experts to pinpoint the biggest and
best investments in the agroforestry sector. Once they find a worthwhile project, they take their
time to set up the development the correct way to benefit the local community and mitigate risk. In
doing so, the company can offer their clients investment opportunities far from the dangerous
financial variables of other projects and the chance to become part of a project providing fantastic
benefits to a local community.
