Find Forestry expertise in Grenada

Forestry, along with agriculture and fisheries contribute around five per cent to Grenada’s GDP (2008). Grenada has almost 17,000 hectares of forest and over 1,200 hectares of other wooded land (2010). In 2010 approximately 210 hectares of forest was used for production purposes; Grenada construction wood and timber is a major part of the timber and lumber export from Grenada and there is a large supply opportunity. Companies involved in the timber and lumber market include TIDC, Hardco suppliers, and Carib Trace. Large areas of land are currently protected for conservation purposes; this includes the Grand Etang Forest Reserve which protects over 1,700 hectares of land for the conservation of biodiversity. The ministry of agriculture, forestry and fisheries manage this sector.
