Professional forest management is key to producing the right trees for making the right products. We take pride in the way we manage and take care of our forests – from land preparation, seed selection, planting, disease and pest control, thinning, pruning and harvesting. It’s a deliberate, methodical and continuous process to ensure that the product requirements are met. JNL intensively prune our forests in order to grow a high value clearwood resource for processing in our plants.
We have 40,000 hectares of predominantly radiata pine plantation forest, across two North Island regional locations – Wairarapa and East Coast. Our forests are close to our mill operations so freshly cut logs can be efficiently delivered for processing.
