Mphome

Southern Africa,Africa

Mphome is a company formed by Africa Forestry Fund II after the acquisition of 6,400 ha of eucalyptus and pine plantations located in the Limpopo province of South Africa. Although the quality of the plantations is below par, there are significant opportunities to rehabilitate the asset as well as opportunities for higher and better use of select portions of the land where agriculture will be developed with ZZ2.

We are invested in Mphome through Africa Forestry Fund II, which is managed by Criterion Africa Sustainable Forestry Management II LLC. For further information on the fund, the fund manager, and the expected impact of the fund’s investment, click here.
