The Group of Economy and Forest Management gathers Esalq/USP undergraduate and graduate students. Its activities contribute to the transparency of the conditions in the Brazilian forest market. At the same time, the group enables its members to apply the knowledge on economy and management acquired in the classroom.
Monthly, the group collects prices and other information about 56 forest products in the states of Pará and São Paulo and elaborates the bulletin CEPEA – FOREST SECTOR.
The team also generates information on prices and conditions of the paper and pulp market. The information is part of the column published by the group coordinator in the magazine O Papel, from the Brazilian Technical Association of Pulp and Paper (ABTCP).
In the group of native plants, in São Paulo State, prices of jatobá (Hymenaea courbaril), ipê (Tabebuia / trumpet trees) and peroba (Aspidosperma) woods are collected. In Pará, prices of species like jatobá (Hymenaea courbaril), peroba (Aspidosperma), maçaramduba (Manilkara huberi / bully-tree), angelim pedra (Hymenolobium petraeum), angelim vermelho (Dinizia excelsa) and cumaru (Dipteryx odorata / kumaru) are collected.
