Forestry

Council's Forestry activity can contribute to integrated employment opportunities in our District.

Council has forestry interests at Waihao and in Forestry Reserves, including joint venture agreements with land owners. Operational management of forestry is tendered out to a professional forest management company.

Every year Council attend to the following routine matters in order to maintain service levels set in agreement with our community.

  • Maintain, operate and harvest from Council owned/interested forestry blocks.
  • Maintain an awareness of market conditions for forestry in order to maximise sale revenues
