We can have a bigger impact if we come together as one voice.

New Zealand Forest Owners Association (FOA)


The New Zealand Forest Owners Association represents the owners of New Zealand’s commercial plantation forests. Our members are committed to the highest standards of sustainable silviculture, environmental practice and workplace safety. Alongside industry partners we help provide educational resources and training opportunities for anyone wanting to begin and grow a career in forestry. Our highly innovative, science-based plantation forestry is a major regional employer with the potential to transform New Zealand into a carbon-neutral economy.
