Rubber trees Kidapawan

mindanao-rubber-tree-004Rubber tree nursery – Kidapawan Mindanao

This rubber tree nursery is on the side of the road leading up to Mt. Apo. I had picked up a passenger near the hot springs in Agko that was  involved with the project and he gave me a quick tour.

mindanao-rubber-tree-006The grafting procedure is being explained. I might have it all wrong but I think that he was saying that they use root stock from one plant and another variety is grafted on to it.

We had a nice conversation coming down from the mountain. It is not common for foreigners to be riding around out here on a bike.

mindanao-rubber-tree-002Apparently it takes about 25 years for a tree to reach it’s peak production of about a liter of milky sap per day. The caretaker has to use caution not to over do it when the grooves are cut into the tree’s trunk or the tree might not recover.

With proper care, a rubber tree is expected to have a life expectancy of well over 100 years.

mindanao-rubber-tree-005When these trees are ready to be planted they do not go on Mount Apo because the elevation is too high for optimum growing conditions. This variety does well at an altitude of 700 feet above sea level.

It is interesting to see the vegetation change as you gain altitude. It gets damp and cool the higher you get.

  6. Hello j.t besana,

    I really don’t have that kind of information. I just gave the manager of this farm a lift on the back on my motorbike when we were coming down from Mount Apo.

    He invited me for a quick tour of this rubber tree nursery.

    You will have to get with a professional supplier of that sort of thing. Good luck with your project!

  9. Hi ron,

    “dutchpickle” doesn’t know anything about buying rubber trees.

    Get with an expert to see if you have the right conditions for growing these trees, keeping in mind that it takes 25 years to reach peak production. Careful planning now will pay off in the future!

  30. I got across this website. I came from malaybalay City, Bukidnon and interested in rubber plantation. My area is an elevated one though i dont have yet the exact data of the elevation but it was estimated by the Department of Agriculture personnel to be 900-1000 meter above sea level. Is it feasible for rubber plantation at that elevation?

    How much it cost for each seedlings in your nursery if ever I’ll buy from you for 4 hectares? how about to the transpo going to malaybalay?

  33. Hi Efren

    mangutana unta ko kung duna naba kay seedling nga pwde itanom sa land nga my elevation nga more than 1000 mtrs above sea level? ng ingon man gud and Dept of Agriculture nga wala pa clay studies nga nabuhat sa more than 1000mtrs ky 600 mtrs lang kutob ang ilang na studyhan. however sa vietnam more than 1k mtrs pwde ra unsa nga clone ug duna nba kay clone para sa akong type of land?


  34. DP

    my question is, does efren already have a clone of rubber seedling that can be use in my area in which the elevation is more than 1000mtrs above sea level? as per advice by the Dept of Agriculture our rubber clones here are good only for those lands with elevation of 600mtrs below however as a nursery I am looking for about 7000pcs of rubber seedlings in which clones are suitable for my land which is more that 1000mtrs above sea level…
