Mahogany trees have very long roots which spread out into a ‘carpet mesh’, so the trees hold each other firmly with their roots.

Hurricanes are rare here, because they rather rage over flat land.

Since 1873, 32 hurricanes hit the Dominican Republic, but the last unpleasant experience with a tropical hurricane date back to 1998 (Hurricane George). Everything that came afterwards moved past us, albeit sometimes with consequences.

Is there a way to insure my trees in addition?


Yes. The Agricultural Insurance of the Dominican Republic ‘AGRODOSA’ www.agrodosa.com.do provides cover for cultivated areas. In this case, only the restoration value is insured at the beginning, that is, the re-planting in case of damage. From an age of trees of 3 years, the complete biomass loss, in case of damage is replaced. The insurance premium is 4% per annum of the biomass value of the insured trees, with the Dominican Republic government providing 50% of the insurance premium for project support. The tree owner thus pays 2% of the insured sum per year. The annual insurance premium thus increases in the same proportion as the biomass growth of the insured trees. In the event of damage, 35% of AGRODOSA is reinsured by Munich Re and 50% by Swiss RE.

The insurance is taken out for 1 year and can be renewed every year.

Trees are only insured if the insurance policy is attached to the tree information with an indication of the term. The policyholder is the operating company Majestic-Trees SRL, which in case of damage assigns the insurance claims to the respective tree owners in full.
