Company Summary

KOMAZA works to get African dryland families out of poverty by planting trees for sale as high-margin wood products. We provide farmers with training, tools and inputs for land preparation, tree planting, and maintenance. Starting Year 6, we harvest trees from each farm and process logs for sale. We're creating a path out of poverty for dryland families, a sustainable tree supply for voracious wood markets, and a company committed to impact.
