Forest Planting

If you’re thinking about planting a forest as an investment, expert advice at the outset will see your returns maximised in the future. This is where our experience counts.


We are forest planting specialists, establishing new forests and replanting existing forests after harvest. Our largest planting year saw the successful establishment of over 4000 hectares of new plantings.

We use control pollinated seedstocks which are audited on delivery.
