Megafolia Tree and Tri-Folia Fast Growth Trees
To Clean Air, Water, & Soil "Phyto-Remediation"

Why Plant Fast Growing Megafolia Trees?

"Photosynthesis" is the exchange cycle of CO2 (carbon-dioxide) emissions, as absorbed through the trees Large Leaves thus starting Mother Nature's cleaning process! The roots perform phyto-extraction and start dissimulating or breaking down the elements / constuients in the soil and begin purifying contaminated water by transpiring at night time and evapro-transpirung in the day time releasing water and replenished oxygen is released back into the atmosphere as the byproduct being Clean, Air, & Water for us! Governments, Cities, Municipalities, Utilities, Dairies Poultry & hog farms, Railroad sites, Petroleum sites, Fertilizer yards, Landfills & dumps, Mine tailings, Nuclear contamination Superfund sites, Military sites, paper pulp mills, & other sites.

The COST of Remediating Hazardous waste sites & Superfund sites are enormous and Companies are still responsible for the waste they generate. With the Megafolia tree the COST are a fraction of the permitting, hauling, & disposal of a Haz site. The Megafolia wood has more added valuable than the Willow or poplar tree, The PTC will turnkey install a plantation or planting on your Site & will manage the irrigation, weed control, fertilizing, pest control, & total tree management, even to selective harvesting for a multitude of wood products that proves, "It Pays to Phytoremediate”

Increasing Demand for Timber!

Mankind has always and will always have an insatiable appetite for wood and wood products.

Population Growth: By the simple fact of the steadily increasing human population, there is a concomitant increase in the need for wood (wood for heat, cooking fuel, shelter, furniture, tools, art supplies, and musical instruments, as well as for construction related wood products.)

Related products. Wood is needed in the production of various products such as rubber, resins, quinine, turpentine and cellulose. As more wood-dependent products are developed, the demand will increase.

Paper-related products. As commerce steadily increases so does the need for more shipping containers, usually made of cardboard. While recycling satisfies part of the need, it cannot keep up with the demand. With the advent of the personal computer with printer and FAX, using reams of paper is no longer considered excessive, but rather is now a basic home necessity (to be used for the children's homework and the family business).

The Opportunity:

Basic business economics makes it clear that the most desirable place to be is in the middle between a long term, decreasing supply, and a steadily increasing demand. To Megafolia Trees is the way to enter the world lumber market as one of the relatively few "middlemen"/producers/suppliers (without purchasing a forest or waiting 30 to 40 years). To be among the first to plant Megafolia Trees as an Agro-forester means you will be among the first to market, and means you will receive among the highest price for your product.

Waiting for forests to naturally regenerate takes far too long, and is not economically feasible. To speed things up, various methods of reforestation are employed (propagating and re-planting harvested forest regions). These practices have shortened the re-growth of a forest region; nonetheless, it still requires 35 to 45 years.

To further shorten the time from germination to harvest, scientists have helped to develop faster growing pine varieties. However, this method still takes 20 to 30 years (depending on all the variables - soils, climate, cultural practices, etc.). To date, the fastest, most effective method for growing wood bearing trees is agro-forestry. This is the planting of wood producing trees on tree farms or orchard-type plantations. Among the fastest growing, wood producing trees in the world are various species of eucalyptus, poplar and paulownia. The eucalyptus wood is primarily used for cellulose and firewood. Poplar wood is used as a low cost wood for doors, windows and molding. Megafolia is the highest quality of the fast growers. Of course, as with any wood, the older the wood at harvest the higher the quality (more "character" to the wood) and the higher the price.

Megafolia Trees has these Additional Characteristics/Advantages

  • The Megafolia can be coppiced (harvest the tree by cutting it off near ground level and another tree will begin to grow from the same root system). This can be done several times (4 to 6 times) during the life of the tree.
  • We have field-tested the Megafolia and roots acts as Bio-filter to reduce the contaminated Soils from many industry sources, even salt tolerant!
  • Intercropping. Because Megafolia has a vertical root system, growers can plant annuals between the rows of trees for diversified income if desired.
  • The wood is a lightweight hardwood, straight-grained, free of knots, very stable, light in color, easy to work (mill, sand, carve, etc.), and very easy to dry and with less drying defects.
  • In autumn, the fallen leaves can be used as nutrient-rich stock feed, or as a component of high-grade compost to enrich the soil.
  • The large surface areas of the Megafolia's broad leaves take-in correspondingly large amounts of carbon dioxide, and give out correspondingly large amounts of oxygen.
  • The ornamental beauty of the Megafolia is displayed in its cascades of blue to pink shades of blossoms (depending on the species) for 4 to 6 weeks during the spring, and these flowers produce excellent honey.
  • Water sensitive roots will not invade sewer or water pipes.
  • Can be used for furniture, veneer, boxes for shipping, particleboard, doors & windows, musical instruments, picture frames, toys, fishing net floats, and for shoes.
  • The wood is also very stable in wet/humid environments, and is highly durable and decay resistant.

Agricultural Standards for Planting

1,000 tree seedling per acre - 1 acres = 43,560 sq. feet
1 Hectare = 2.47 acres = 10,000 square meters
1 Hectare = 2,470 tree seedlings = 4 squares per tree
1 Square kilometer = 100 hectares = 1,000,000
Square meters = 247,000 tree seedlings

Quick initial summery for a country such as Bangladesh (without roads, rail lines, waterways and other tree projects that the province has intentions of planting seedlings)

Low Yield Farmland .............. 5,400,000,000 (5.4 Billion seedlings)
Baron Land........................... 6,420,000,000 (6.42 Billion seedlings
Shelter Belts......................... 100,000,000 (0.1 Billion seedlings)
Existing Forested Areas..... ....1,533,000,000 (1.522 Billion seedlings)/year
Total Initial Demand.................13,453,000,000 (13.4 Billion Seedlings)

Characteristics of the Wood:

  • Lightweight (14 to 18 lbs. per cubic foot)
  • Strong
  • Outstanding resonant qualities.
  • Extremely stable (resists warp/crack/deform)
  • Light color; silky smooth finish
  • Grain: fine, straight, knot-free
  • Easy to work. (No chipping or tear-out in planning)
  • Does not require kiln drying
  • Takes stains well
  • 12% moisture

Uses of Megafolia Lumber:

  • Veneer constitutes one of the highest value markets
  • Furniture and cabinet making also bring high value
  • Logs for wholesale export market
  • Plywood, particleboard, and flake board
  • Paneling and folding partitions
  • Musical Instruments due to excellent resonance
  • Toys
  • Pulp
  • Poles
  • Pallets, boxes, and crates
  • Core material (laminated small stock)
  • Molding and picture frames
  • Packing material (natural insulation, biodegradable packing no odor or taste)
  • Beehive construction
  • Wicking material for evaporative coolers
  • Activated charcoal for filtration systems
  • Lightweight partitions in airplanes and ships
  • Fishing net floats
  • Dairy farm bedding

Leaves:

  • Mulch and soil amendment
  • Fodder: Nutritional value similar to alfalfa: appropriate fodder for cattle, goats, sheep, and rabbits, with a protein level of 20% with 60% digestibility.
  • Shade: The value of shade, particularly for intercropping purposes, is difficult to put a value on, however, is certainly one of its more priceless aspects.
  • Air Purification: Leaves are nitrogen fixing and very large. The size of the leaves "inhale" correspondingly large amounts of carbon dioxide and "exhale" large amounts of oxygen.
  • Healthcare: A decoction of Megafolia leaves have been used in China to manage the delirium of typhoid fever, a wash for sores, and to cure swollen ankles and feet. 
  • Mushroom compost: Abalone mushrooms can be grown in a medium made from Megafolia leaf mulch for growing in sheds during summer months.
