Y & M Regeneration Limited is a sustainable forestry company that aims to contribute to greening the environment whilst yielding the economic and social benefits from tree planting. Established and operated in Ghana, Y&M regenerations operates a renewable and integrated business model to provide forest and agro products on a sustainable basis. Our business differs from ‘business-as-usual’ approach by ensuring our operations protects the environment by ensuring there is no 100% harvest of our plants, but operate a selective harvesting approach so as to promote natural resources regeneration. We also aim to reduce forest degradation in Ghana through afforestation and reforestation approaches to ensure a sustainable supply of forest products that do not harm the environment. To this end, we have established over 489 hectares of timber plantation which is still be expanded to comprise other cash crops like cashew. We also operate a plant nursery to support forest and cash crop plantation establishments. Our operations are mainly in the Ashanti and Brong-Ahafo region. Over the years, we have collaborated with like-minded institutions such as Forestry Commissions, NGOs, Academic institutions etc. to address climate change through tree planting. In the long-term, we aim to ensure forest resources do not deteriorate whilst we exploit natural resources to meet our consumption needs.
