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 3rd largest export sector with the country’s original and most successful forestry investment manager.

New Investments

Our youngest investments – the Wairarapa and Ngatawhai Group Forests – are outstanding second-rotation forests located in the productive region of Wairarapa, only ninety minutes north of Wellington city.

We’re proud to be offering the next generation the opportunity invest in their future via these high-quality, responsibly managed forests.

While these offers are now closed, we will soon be launching our next second rotation forestry investment.

Ways to invest

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

  • 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.

Our investments are structured to provide the control and protection we know investors value. Like limited liability, tax deductibility and liquidity.
