Forestry Expo - Biggest Portal for Forestry equipment, Timber Supplies, Logging Equipment and other forestry products in New Zealand.

Ross-Middleton22
Online editor, Ross Middleton welcomes you to Forestryexpo.co.nz, your most up-to-date portal for forestry equipment, timber supplies, logging equipment and other forestry products and services in New Zealand. This is your one-stop communication medium for anything to do with the forestry sector in New Zealand. Here you will find the latest news and industry activity along with a comprehensive directory service and other valuable New Zealand forestry sector information.
 
This year continues to be a difficult time for the forestry sector in New Zealand as multiple factors impact on an industry worth some 4.5. billion export dollars.
 
The big issue, of course, continues to be how to make a profit and how to continue production in the face of a plethora of adverse conditions. It is all very well to talk about cost and workplace efficiencies but where do you go after you have emptied that well of water.
 
Anyone who has followed the news pages on this website and the associated newsletter will know the issues: falling log prices and global demand; the escalating costs of production and business in general; the pressures of sustainability and forest estate stewardship; the struggle for meaningful investment growth strategies; coming to grips with the multifarious factors around greenhouse gas emissions and carbon trading.
 
But if you think it is all doom and gloom then reconsider. In these pages you will also learn about a vibrant and proactive industry that does not rest on any laurels or false assumptions. Here you will read stories about new technologies, new research, new initiatives and new products. You will be directed to companies that live and breathe forestry and its success.
 
The recently promoted Forest and Wood Products Industry Strategic Action Plan would have the industry worth $12 billion in export earnings by 2022. Forestry Expo will be commenting on and committing to helping with that drive.
 
Read it all here. If you want to comment on published information, make a point on industry activities or advise of new products and services, contact Ross Middleton: editor@forestryexpo.co.nz
