Approximately half of our total hectares under management is located in the Gisborne region on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island. We manage 31 forests over 10,119 hectares – 28 Forest Enterprises investments and three private forests.
In 2018, our Gisborne harvest volume was approximately 210,000 tonnes and this annual volume is expected to triple within four years. Almost all the logs produced from our Gisborne estate are exported through Eastland Port.
With this expanding volume, so too is our Gisborne branch. Under the leadership of Gisborne Regional Manager Dan Fraser, our Gisborne-based team undertakes the full forest management and supervision of our estate in the region.
