At Woodnet we know that your land and forests are worth money.

We also recognise that they have other values that may be just as important as financial returns.

Our work with clients is guided by one key principle: 

“Adding value”

We will help you identify and realise value from your forests, whether they are exotic or indigenous.

To maximise your benefit we:

  • offer high-quality, independent advice
  • work at all places within the forest value chain
  • work in woodlots and large-scale forests, and on farms of all types
  • have experience with a range of tree species and forest types.

We also specialise in working with lawyers, accountants and other trusted professionals seeking advice on behalf of clients.


Manuka and Profitable Marginal Land Use – Seminar and Field Visit – May 2015

In February 2014, over 150 people attended a highly successful seminar: ‘Manuka: A major forest product opportunity for New Zealand landowners’, run by Masterton-based forestry consultants Woodnet in conjunction with the Wairarapa Farm Forestry Association.

This year a second seminar is planned, this time in Napier, run by Woodnet in partnership with the Hawkes Bay Regional Council.

‘Manuka and Profitable Marginal Land Use’, Wednesday 6th May 2015, War Memorial Conference Centre, Napier, 9.00am- 4.30pm 

The seminar will feature a line-up of top industry speakers, and includes an afternoon visit to the Hawkes Bay Regional Council’s manuka trial sites at Tutira.

The seminar will update participants on major developments in the fields of manuka health science, markets for manuka products, the economics and practicalities of growing manuka on marginal land, and the beekeepers’ perspective of working with landowners.

More details and full seminar programme to follow soon.
