Megafolia Fast Growth Tree Projects

The White Light Group (TWLG) has partnered with companies to focus resources and promote our Megafolia Tree and Tri-Folia Projects, the fastest growing tree project on the Planet. Our partnered groups have invested in recent years with project expansions that included a new facility in Southern California, by building new green houses and a new plant cloning facility. The cost of planting a Megafolia Fast Growth Tree Project will cost around $5 to $7 USD per tree that will re-grow after logged, making it a true renewable resource.

We have turned to our partnered groups in developing fast growth hardy trees for commercial purposes and is renewable resource (grows back from its own stump after harvest). To the right are photos of the growth cycles of the trees and our average 5-year-old Megafolia tree ready for harvest for lumber for affordable housing projects, plywood, cabinets, and for use as biomass fuel for energy. The world needs the tree for economic growth, housing, Mediciable purposes, wildlife environments and to generate oxygen for the continued survival of humanity.

TWLG is working in developing new advanced methods of reclaiming arid lands and deserts for new agricultural projects. We are also planning Megafolia Fast Growth Tree Projects as a renewable resource in the production of Ethanol and Methanol fuel production. By building fuel processing plants and using the fuel to generate electricity for communities we can utilize renewable resources more intelligently.

Planting trees for carbon sequestration / storage, very slow growing “forests” do not compare with fast intensive agro-forestry practices with timber growth rate up to 10 times faster. The leaves, limbs, fiber and roots of the tree store C02 emission from fossil fueled power plants. By measuring the dbh at the end of each growing season, and issuing a certification of survey for each acre with a co-ordinate and satellite photos.

Trees are our future, vital to our survival and economic development.

Uses of Megafolia Hybrid

Lumber:
Affordable housing construction
Plywood, particleboard, and flake board
Furniture and cabinet making also bring high value
Paneling
Biomass fuel for power plant
Core material (laminated small stock)
Veneer constitutes one of the highest value markets
Activated charcoal for filtration systems
Logs for wholesale export market
Commercial goods
Fishing net floats
Livestock farm bedding
Wicking material for evaporative coolers
Packing material (natural insulation, biodegradable packing - no odor or taste)
Pulp

Leaves:
Biomass fuel for power plant
Ethanol and methanol fuel production
Air purification 3/4 leaves are nitrogen fixing and very large. The size of the leaves "inhale" correspondingly large amounts of carbon dioxide and "exhale" large amounts of oxygen

Seeds and Flowers:
Beautification
Aroma and fragrance
Packaging material (seeds)
Promotes honey production
Herbal medication - Flowers are used to cure ailments of the liver or bile, which cause dizziness. Strangely enough, when the flowers are mixed with scrambled eggs, a medication for treating bronchitis is produced.

An Example of a Project Currently Underway in Africa

Central African Biofuel and Economic Development Project

The Democratic Republic of the Congo to develop and build a AGRO-Forestry/Agricultural, 100 Million Gallon Per Year Ethanol Biorefinery and an Industrial Development Park. Our mission is to create solutions, which will help create positive change within the DRC and lead to the more healthy and equitable production and processing of the DRC agricultural and agro-forestry resources. In the creation of this plan for this agro-forestry, agriculture and industrial development plan we have sought ways to achieve tangible and expandable economic, physical and human resources development and the stated focus areas of the greater economic development scheme.

"Plant fast growing trees, (Megafolia Tree) for the production of raw materials for integrated wood industries; in between rows of trees, plant agricultural crops, preferably sugarcane, sorghum, corn, and/or sweet potato as raw material for alcohol production, for animal feeds production, or for other downstream industries, while waiting for the trees to mature. Agro-Forestry Farm size may vary from 25,000 acres at the lowland areas to 50,000 acres combination of foothill and upland areas."

Probably the most important feature of the agricultural program is its economic feasibility. While it takes some two years to clear, level, pre-condition the soil, install the irrigation system, and plant trees and the agricultural crop, before the end of the two years there should be harvestable agriculture crop available to sell or process to ethanol/alcohol. By the end of the third year the agricultural crop is projected to support the entire project and begin to pay back the investment with a projected rate of return of some 32%. At current margins of profit for the ethanol, the agro portion of the project can pay for itself in 5-6 years. Said another way (for "investors"): Who would not jump at the opportunity to invest in a project that will pay for itself in 5-6 years and yield a return of some 30% per year thereafter? On top of that, after ten years the rate of return is nearly 100% per year.

Sources of Revenues are:

Pre-ethanol Production:
Sugar cane crops, sugar beets and other cash crops to grow between rows of Paulownia and for 1st year plant start up phase one for ethanol plant. Cash crops for export and domestic sales,

Carbon credits.

Post Ethanol Production:
Sales of ethanol,
Sale of alcohol,
Sale of high-end lumber,
