Forward-looking thinking presupposes that you take options on potential developments. That is why Group Machiels has invested in acquiring potentially interesting sites in Chile. The company has bought a site of around 2200 hectares of woodland, spread over several parcels, near Concepción. These are mainly eucalyptus and pine forests. They are maintained and preserved with a view to the sustainable growth of high-quality wood. That does not, however, rule out the possibility of these woodlands being used for other, as yet undefined, purposes in future.
