In preparation for the commencement of harvest in 2016 of our 10,500 hectare estate in Gisborne, Forest Enterprises has formed a strategic alliance with local company Logic Forest Solutions Limited. This alliance includes a shareholding in Logic and having a director on the Board.

For the last four years we have contracted with Logic to undertake our harvest planning work in our Wairarapa and Gisborne forests, and more recently resource consent preparation and related pre-harvest work for our Gisborne forests. Forming a strategic alliance with Logic was consequentially a logical extension, and brings together the complementary skills which exist between the two companies.

Logic will continue to grow their existing customer base, whilst providing key services for Forest Enterprises, for whom they will now undertake the operational work relating to our Gisborne harvest program. All contracts will be directly with Forest Enterprises, who will also manage all Gisborne log sales as an extension of our existing 300,000 tonne per annum harvest program in the Wairarapa.

For further information contact Steve Wilton or Bert Hughes from Forest Enterprises, or Richard Smith, Managing Director of Logic Forest Solutions.
