Gestión recursos naturales

Our team

Who we are

GEA Forestal was started with the firm purpose of improving our environment by offering technically responsible solutions with the natural environment.

Our company has become established in the last few years as a model at the national level for the implementation of forest certification systems like FSC and PEFC. Currently, we have facilitated the certification of more hectares of private forests than any other company in Spain. More than 30,000 hectares have achieved the FSC stamp thanks to our work.

At GEA Forestal we also carry out another series of services focused both on forest owners and businesses in the sector.

Business Philosophy

At GEA Forestal, we recognize the importance of conserving and improving our natural environment, and as such, we strive to offer the best technical and human solutions possible to achieve responsible and sustainable management of our forest resources.

Since our start in 2011, our company philosophy has been that of participative and equal teamwork, allowing us to apply our knowledge to technical projects and to grow both professionally and personally.

As experts in the field, we have the responsibility to balance human development with the protection of our planet.
