Biomass Production
= Approximate number of hectares (52,000 acres) of South American forest owned by ADM for biomass production, including more than 15,700 hectares (39,000 acres) of eucalyptus trees.

The production of plant or plant-based materials – including wood chips and logs – provide a cost-effective, renewable source of energy. We plant approximately 2,600 hectares (6,400 acres) of trees per year, while harvesting around 1,800 hectares (4,400 acres). The plantation areas range from one to seven years old, and trees are generally harvested after six years of growth.
