Roger Dickie (N.Z.) Ltd is at the forefront of New Zealand Forestry and Farm investments. Formed in 1971, the company has established over 93 forests and farms for investors.
Since 1990 Roger Dickie (N.Z.) Ltd has deliberately concentrated their Radiata forest activities in the northern Hawke’s Bay, Wairoa and Gisborne regions on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.
The region produces New Zealand’s highest Radiata forest growth rates. Quality land is available at reasonable prices. This is the foundation of a profitable forestry investment.
The Hawke’s Bay, Wairoa and Gisborne regions have an established and well developed timber based infrastructure including pulp mill, saw mills and a tri-board mill. The advantages of this region are further enhanced by close proximity to two log export ports at Napier and Gisborne.
Each Roger Dickie (N.Z.) Ltd forestry investment begins with the purchase of freehold land. Only the best properties are selected after a forestry feasibility study has been completed. This leads to low risk forestry development and maximum forest growth rates. The land is prepared, forestry roads are formed and the new forest is planted between May and September.
