Wush Wush, Ethio Agri-CEFT’s tea growing and processing farm co-developed eucalyptus plantation covering 977 ha of land. The eucalyptus plantation was mainly planted for wood fuel to produce energy. This fast growing species of eucalyptus is easily chopped for use by the boilers to convert dry green leaves to black tea. In addition to drying tea, the logs from the eucalyptus plantation are processed by sawmills and sold to various customers in the domestic market. The average lumber output has been about 375 cubic meters per year. Some of the products have been sold in the form of pallets, saw logs and transmission poles that have supported the country’s electrification efforts. Wush Wush tea plantation also has a wood workshop that has been developing various products including household and office furniture. With investment in newer machinery, the workshop can produce products that add better value. We work to minimize the environmental impact of all our activities including our timber work operations.
