Hectares were harvesting takes place are pre-identified and mapped, following a clear and recognizable system.
In the case of forest products, such as poles, decorative woods and palm-leaf harvest, the harvest cycle is at least 10 years.

How to order
Our pricing policy follows a clear model. We apply standard market prices “of the day” to which we apply a 25% sustainability fee. This fee helps to cover the actual cost of protecting the forests of Freshwater Creek Forest Reserve (patrols, equipment, signs, survey line maintenance etc.).
It is this fee that will ensure that Freshwater Creek Forest Reserve will continue to exist for future generations to enjoy.
In some cases, CSFI may sub-contract harvests to outside forest contractors, but in close and permanent supervision, and following our strict sustainability guidelines. All contracted and employed labour is legal, and all social benefits are covered. Child labour is strictly forbidden, and we make sure all wages are fair.
Where to find us
CSFI is a strictly field-based organization. Our offices are based at the headquarters of the Shipstern Conservation & Management Area, 3 miles before Sarteneja.
