About Us

GreenChild

A sustainable and worthwhile investment

For You. For The Planet. For Our Children.

OUR VISION

Greenchild is committed to make a significant contribution to climate protection and the preservation of nature. With the cultivation of Kiri trees, the fastest growing tree in the world, our plantations absorb large quantities of CO2 and quickly deliver first-class precious wood. Together with you, we aim to steadily expand our plantations, sustainably protect the environment and promote further nature conservation projects. We will  revolutionize the timber market and protect existing woodlands around the world. For you. For the planet. For our children.

Our Values

At Greenchild, we live by four fundamental values that guide our work and commitment:

Sustainability:

We emphasize sustainable forest agriculture and contribute to climate protection.

Quality:

We cultivate high-quality Kiri seedlings, produce precious Kiri wood and provide the best possible services to our investors and partners.

Trust:

We are a business with a high reputation and a family-like atmosphere. We have excellent relationships with our investors, partners and the government.

Transparency:

We want to share our success with our investors and partners by reporting regularly and transparently on our business activities.

Our History

2009

Our co-founder Nazim Azemi learns about the potential of the Kiri tree for the first time. Years of research and expert advice follow.

2014

Nazim believes in the potential of the Kiri tree and starts with initial cultivations and plantings.

2017

We plant 475 Kiri trees in Isniq, Kosovo. 

2018

The trees have already grown five meters. We are thrilled and decide that this is just the beginning. 

2019

We acquire 20 hectares of land in Ferizaj, Kosovo, and plant over 12,000 Kiri trees - grown in our own laboratory. Our first large plantation is born. We name it "Phoenix One."

2020

Our progress attracts international interest. We gain new business partners and expertise. Entrepreneurs Jeton Shala and Josef Fürnkäs and his two children Josef Jr. and Gloria, together with Nazim Azemi, found Greenchild L.L.C. We set a goal to plant 1,000 hectares of unused land with over 600,000 Kiri trees within the next five years.

2022

Our "Phoenix One" plantation is now the largest of its kind in Europe. Around 100,000 Kiri trees grow on 160 hectares of land. This corresponds to an area of around 213 soccer fields fully planted with Kiri trees - a majestic sight. 

2022

We expand and establish a subsidiary in northern Macedonia. We acquire 100 hectares of land near Kumanovo.

2023

Groundbreaking ceremony for "Phoenix Two" in Kumanovo and first plantings. Further milestones will follow soon.
