The recent release of our 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 nearly twenty years, we have available new issue forestry investments for the next generation of investors.

We’re proud to offer outstanding second-rotation forest land in the productive region of Wairarapa, ninety minutes north of Wellington city.

Applications are open.

Secondary Market

We facilitate the sale and purchase of shares in established Forest Enterprises forestry investments, matching willing sellers with willing buyers.

When shares are available, they will be listed here – click on the forest name below for the investment profile:

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.

How our investments work

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

And as the forest and investment manager, everything we do is to maximise returns to the investor.

Full service forestry investment
