Mere Plantations are a UK based company with over 15 years experience in reafforestation of degraded forest land.

Who We Are

Mere Plantations grow mainly Teak (Tectona Grandis) due to the resilience of the tree, and the high value of the associated timber.

For the sake of good husbandry and essential biodiversity, Mere intersperse stands with native hardwoods.

Mere grow timber for its own business, as well as contract grow for companies and institutions.

It is said we are the first generation to understand the damage we are causing to the planet. It is said we are the last generation that can do anything about it.

We either take responsibility for our actions, or we leave it to others.

Trees are the lungs of our planet, acting as filters of the atmosphere by taking in harmful pollutants such as carbon monoxide, locking them away in the body of the tree, and releasing oxygen.
