NTT Mahogany 2006-2008 Project
|Term of Project
ATO Product Ruling
The NTT Mahogany Project 2006-2008
provides you with an opportunity to carry on
the business of commercially growing
mahogany trees in the Northern Territory.
The timber from the Plantation will produce
high value hardwood for use in the furniture
and building industries.
As a Grower, you will receive a licence to
grow mahogany on a minimum of 2 Woodlots, each Woodlot being 0.25 hectares
or approximately .625 acre in size, on which
the Planting Co (as a subcontractor to the
Responsible Entity) will plant an average of
no less than 142 Trees. Your Woodlots will
be established within 12 months of your
application being accepted.
As a sub-contractor to the Responsible
Entity, the Land Co will maintain the
Woodlots on your behalf.
Under the terms of the Maintenance
Agreement, the Land Co undertakes that
there will be an average of at least 142
healthy Trees on each Woodlot at the end
of the 13-month period following planting.
Should the average not exceed the
minimum planting density of 142 healthy
Trees, the Land Co will have replacement
Trees planted to ensure the minimum
And the Timber Co, as a sub-contractor to
the Responsible Entity, will Harvest the
Trees on your behalf and market and sell the Timber. Three thinnings or harvests will be
undertaken during the term of the Woodlots.
Half the trees will be thinned prior to year
6, a second thinning of 25% will take place
at approximately year 11 and the final
harvest of the balance will take place
around year 16 of the Project. The Grower
will receive any proceeds from thinnings or
harvests and 50% of any carbon credits.
Harvesting, milling, drying and marketing
costs will be deducted prior to distribution
