We manage 20 investment forests in the Wairarapa, a total of around 9,000 hectares.
Harvest is well underway in the Wairarapa and continues to increase as we bring more of our first rotation investments into the harvest programme. We produce around 350,000 tonnes per year from our harvesting investment forests – two-thirds going to Wellington’s CentrePort for export and the balance to domestic timber mills in the region.
Our Masterton-based forestry team undertakes the full management and supervision of our investors’ forests in Wairarapa.
We also manage 15,000 hectares in the Southern North Island for an international forestry investment fund, and manage an additional 300,000 tonnes per year from their harvest. Read more on our Sustainability page.
