The release in 2018 of the first of two new-issue forestry investments means that investors can choose to invest 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 one of New Zealand’s leading providers of forestry investment.

Exciting new investment opportunities

For the first time in fifteen years, we will be releasing two new-issue forestry investments to the next generation of forestry investors from 2018.

Both are second rotation radiata pine forests, located in the Wairarapa.

We are now seeking preliminary indications of interest.

Ways to invest

Investors can purchase shares in our forestry investments at two different stages:

  • When the forest is new, at the beginning of its rotation – shares in the investment are purchased from Forest Enterprises as the offeror and the initial investment price is fixed. Find out more about our new investments here.
  • 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.
