I am a Chartered Accountant and have farming clients throughout New Zealand, most of which are in the lower South Island.

I am a member of the Regional Advisory Group for the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants representing Primary Sector Accountants.

As a member of the Regional Advisory Group we identified a need to educate Accountants, Lawyers, and Financiers – essentially professionals servicing the farming sector on the Emissions Trading Scheme in relation to forestry on the practical and accounting implications for their clients.

During 2011 we organised a road show throughout New Zealand that made presentations to over 600 professionals on the Emissions Trading Scheme in relation to forestry.

We wanted a practical approach and delivery and early on identified Stuart as the cornerstone presenter for this road show.

Stuart proved to be an excellent choice and provided a very practical approach to dealing with ETS Forestry.

I have since referred a number of my farming clients who have forestry to Stuart and his team at Woodnet, and have always received a professional and well informed service with regard to ETS Forestry and Forestry Land Use on Farm.

Stuart’s team can provide the full spectrum of services from forestry management, measurement, and marketing, to dealing with all aspects related to ETS Forestry.

I would highly recommend Woodnet to any farmer or forestry business wanting to add value to their business.

I have always found Stuart and the Woodnet team a pleasure to deal with.
