Harvest Plan Your Forest

Roading and engineering costs can be one of the biggest costs when harvesting. It’s critical to get this part of the equation right and we tailor a budget spend to save you thousands.

FTF has excellent Harvest Managers to ensure the harvest is completed the most efficient and effective as possible and within budget.

Do you need to build a bridge, a shipping container culvert, build a road or construct a landing to help process your trees? We will take care of that for you and in doing so provide the best cost control possible to optimise your return.

If you need a Resource consent, Corridor Access Request, Close Approach Powerline permit, Historic places accord or Traffic Management Plan. We can establish what regulatory measures apply to your operation and go about putting in place exactly what you need to ensure the job is fully compliant.
