Join NZFFA >>
Sharing our knowledge of growing trees and their vital
contribution to sustainable, profitable land management

NZFFA was formed in 1957. Membership is spread over 27 Branches throughout NZ, and there are 5 special interest groups. We estimate our members own or manage up to 100,000Ha of forest, and influence the management of a similar area. These forests consist of radiata pine, cypresses, eucalypts, Douglas fir, blackwoods, poplars, other hardwoods, sequoia and NZ indigenous species.

NZFFA are a partner in the Forest Growers Commodity levy. We represent growers throughout New Zealand to further the interests of small forest growers. NZFFA also produces a quarterly market report on log prices.

NZFFA have an online specialty timber marketplace where local timbers and services are available.

Every year we hold a conference, and local branches hold regular events

The Neil Barr Farm Forestry Foundation is a charitable trust that encourages and promotes farm forestry and has funds available for any project or proposal which advances knowledge on, or promotes the wise use of trees on New Zealand farms.
