Out of some 1'231.6 hectares 452.66 hectares are intensely maintained. Based on extensive analyses, parts of these have been taken out of the production of quality teak. The farms that have FSC status are: Boco Chica, Tortí, Cañazas and Agua Fría. San Lorenzo, San Juan, Torio, Zapotal and part of Tortí have been harvested early from 2014 to 2016.

For environmental reasons, about one quarter of the area in not planted and is mostly eco-bridges and -islands where the local flora and fauna can flourish and develop. Roads are being established for maintenance and as fire breaks. Accommodation and sanitary installations for the labourers, depositories for the material, and a house for the foreman and his family have been built.
