ArborGen
 

Created as a partnership for forestry research in 2000 by WestRock (previously MeadWestVaco), International Paper and Rubicon (Fletcher Challenge), now produces the largest number of both conventional and advanced genetic tree seedlings in the world. ArborGen’s work represents the integration of many of forestry’s leading seedling research and production companies into a single company, providing seedling solutions to landowners of all sizes.  The predecessor companies include International Paper, Champion, Mead WestVaco, CellFor, Carter Holt Harvey and Fletcher Challenge.  With world headquarters in Ridgeville, S.C. housing world class forestry research, ArborGen has seven  nurseries, six orchards and additional facilities to distribute seedlings throughout the southeastern United States. Current product development includes research to find improved growth rates, yields, stress tolerance, disease resistance and wood quality.

ArborGen do Brazil
 

ArborGen has been operating in Brazil since 2004 when it opened its office in Campinas in the state of Sao Paulo. ArborGen do Brazil is the only company in Brazil focused exclusively on developing and supplying tree seedlings with superior genetics to the general Brazilian forestry market. ArborGen began selling Eucalyptus seedlings in 2013 and loblolly and other pine seedlings in 2014. Eucalyptus, a hardwood, is the most widely planted tree species in Brazil, loblolly pine is the most widely grown softwood species. Beyond its conventional products, ArborGen Brazil is field testing herbicide tolerant, drought tolerant high density and high growth eucalyptus products developed using biotechnology.
