Reforestation for Florida Forests
In a world of uncertainty, one thing is certain, plant trees and they will grow. In October 2018, Hurricane Michael made landfall as an unprecedented Category 5 Hurricane in the Florida Panhandle region. The storm caused catastrophic damage from wind and storm surge. Hurricanes wreak havoc on forest structure, creating canopy gaps, removing limbs and vegetation, and stressing the trees that remain standing. Investing in the future of forests is key to long-term growth, resiliency and sustainability.
Ingka Investments acquired over three thousand acres of land in Florida and as part of its commitment to forest management Ingka is creating new forestland by planting trees in areas where there were none before. The new forest will help ensure timber production sustainability and recover land damaged by Hurricane Michael.
