Tenco logo About Tenco
Tenco is one of New Zealand’s largest exporters of forest products. We have built to this position since 1991 when the company was set up to export lumber to growing Asian export markets.  Experience and reputation count; from small beginnings Tenco has become the largest independent exporter of New Zealand lumber and New Zealand’s 4th largest log exporter.  Tenco has a regular shipping program of their own log vessels and in combination with these and other ships currently calls  at 7 New Zealand ports (5 North Island and 2 South Island).
 
Tenco buys standing forests.  Tenco currently has a number of forests which they purchased at harvestable age to log over a number of years for export and domestic markets.  Tenco also regularly buys smaller tracts of forest to harvest immediately or immature forests to hold until harvest time.  Tenco is interested in broadening  the  base of owners from whom it purchases forests and stands of trees.  A deal with Tenco is a certain transaction.  The owner and Tenco will agree on a value of the tree crop and then Tenco will pay this amount to the owner either in a lump sum amount or on rate per volume unit out-turn from the forest depending on the nature of the tree crop.
 
Tenco knows there are a lot of farmers who have trees that are close or ready to harvest and will be asking themselves how they should proceed with the sale of their trees.  For some farmers the kind of certain transaction with money in the bank could well be appealing. Tenco is actively interested in buying harvestable forests or trees from areas including all the North Island (except the Gisborne and East Coast districts) and Nelson & Marlborough in the South Island .
 
If you own a forest in this area (16 years and older) and are ready to enter into this kind of agreement Tenco is interested to develop something with you.

One Billion Trees Fund Information Sessions

Te Uru Rākau – Forestry New Zealand (part of the Ministry for Primary Industries) is holding a short series of introductory information sessions on the recently launched One Billion Trees (1BT) Fund – a $238 million Fund to incentivise new tree planting. You can find out more about the 1BT Fund at the Te Uru Rākau website: www.teururakau.govt.nz.

These information sessions are targeted at people who work with landowners and communities on land use options and tree planting, including: rural professionals, Non-Government Organisations, private consultants, industry groups, councils and others.

We will cover what funding is available for landowners and organisations for new tree planting, as well as funding available for initiatives that better enable and support tree planting. 

Please join Te Uru Rākau at an information session near you to learn more about the 1BT Fund and how it could work for landowners and communities in your region. We will run a morning (10:00am – 12:00pm) and an afternoon (1:30pm – 3:30pm) session in each location and additional locations may be advertised at a later date.
