Besides the multiplicity of uses, the eucalyptus planted forests represent a sustainable alternative to the modern world's demand for wood, preserving native forest resources. Eucalyptus provides the charcoal used in blast furnaces as a reducer (heat and energy source), contributing to the high degree of purity of pig iron. 
In compliance with the forestry legislation in effect, Valinho maintains its own eucalyptus forest plantations in Minas Gerais and also participates in forest-fostering projects in the states of Bahia, Mato Grosso, and Goiás. The goal is to achieve self-sufficiency. The company works with state-of-the-art technology, using cloned seedlings to obtain high-yield forests.
