Investors can choose to invest with Forest Enterprises in two ways. Either in a new forest at the beginning of its second rotation, or in an established forest that is nearer harvest. Or both.

Either way, you invest directly in New Zealand’s fourth largest export sector with the country’s original and most successful forestry investment manager.

Ways to invest

Investors can purchase shares in our forestry Managed Investment Schemes at two different stages:

  • When the forest is new, at the beginning of its rotation – shares in the new-issue investment are purchased from Forest Enterprises as the offeror and the initial investment price is fixed. To register your interest in our next investment contact Nicola.
  • When the forest is established and is closer to harvest – shares in the investment are purchased from an existing Forest Enterprises client via the secondary market and the purchase price is negotiated between the buyer and seller. See the list above for current opportunities, or contact Customer Services Manager Sean Roberts on 021 822 802 for more information.
