OneForest gives a 20ha grower the market advantages of a 20,000ha estate.

You’ve spent many years watching your forest grow, waiting for your nest egg to mature.

And as harvest time draws closer, have you thought about how you might maximise the return on your investment? How will you compete with all those other growers who’ll be harvesting at the same time as you, competing for buyers, harvest crews, cartage companies, roading contractors, etc.?
What power do you have as one small grower? In truth… very little.

OneForest can change all that.

We work to bring growers together, to make them a collective force and to give them the market muscle of a super large forestry company. Be a part of something bigger, better and more profitable for you.


Who is OneForest?

OneForest is a family owned and operated business, servicing New Zealand wide.

Our roots in the forestry industry stretches back three generations to nature logging on the West Coast. For the last 15 years, we’ve been helping clients successfully plan, plant, tend and harvest their forestry investments through our company IFS Growth.

During this time we’ve helped plant over 3 million trees and helped numerous growers maximise their returns.

We’ve also built up strong and trusted relationships with suppliers, including harvest crews, cartage companies, sawmills, roading contractors, log buyers and wharf operators. OneForest was born out of the vision to bring these trusted partnerships to a collective of smaller growers, creating a force that can command the market advantages of much larger growers. By aggregating forest owners, organising the wood flow and co-ordinating logistics partners, OneForest can increase market leverage with buyers, reduce costs and work to maximise returns. Your returns. Be part of something bigger, better and more profitable for you.


How does OneForest work?

Growers and the supply chain work together, co-ordinated by OneForest, to plan, harvest, transport, measure and freight the logs to the market, obtaining market power.

Increased size means increased efficiency, shorter supply chains and the opportunities to add additional value. Increased size = increased marketing leverage with buyers.

OneForest gives a 20ha grower the market advantages of a 20,000ha estate.

Organised wood flows for logistics partners creates better planning, more business, more information sharing, new technology and increased profits.

OneForest creates the best return consistently for the forest owner, whilst creating synergies and co-ordination for logistics partners, enabling them to make the best consistent return.


Why OneForest?

Don’t compete with other growers, join them!

When you planted your nest egg in the early 1990s, so did hundreds of other small growers. You all had the same vision and now you’ll all be harvesting at roughly the same time.

This ‘Wave of Wood’ will flood the market with half a million hectares of uncommitted radiata pine wood supply.

More than half owned by small scale growers who hold under 100ha. Don’t compete with fellow growers for buyers or roading, logging and cartage crews. Join forces, join OneForest. Organised wood flows for logistics partners creates better planning, more business, more information sharing, new technology and increased profits.

OneForest creates the best return consistently for the forest owner, whilst creating synergies and coordination for logistics partners, enabling them to make the best consistent return.


What OneForest will do for you

Joining with other growers through OneForest streamlines the harvesting process and reduces your costs. Better still, you won’t be competing against other growers for roading, logging and cartage crews.

Teaming with OneForest means you tap into trusted and established relationships with logistics suppliers. You’ll gain access to wharf space, shipping space and export markets. Plus you’ll have the expertise of a company with over 60 years in forestry behind you.

OneForest will provide you with an expert assessment of your crop and expert management of your harvest. Through the whole process we provide 100% transparency around costs and revenues.

With OneForest you will ride the wave of wood, not drown under its weight!
