In the first year of the project, the company primarily planted acacia mangium. In 2019, following the exploitation of acacia forests, various types of trees like sandalwood, fragrant rosewood, cinnamon, and superlative trees, orchards, and herbal plants, among others, were grown on the land, covering 543.4 ha. 

At present, the trees are growing well, especially sandalwood and cinnamon. The firm also maintains two nurseries with a combined capacity of nearly 3 million saplings, to meet forestation demand in the locality.

The project creates temporary and regular jobs for between 1,000 and 1,500 local workers, with an average monthly salary of 7.5 million VND per person.
