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 regularly buys smaller tracts of forest to harvest immediately or immature forests to hold until harvest time. 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 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.

Managing weeds in planted forests

In a new Scion video, Dr Carol Rolando talks about recent research looking at managing weeds in planted forests.

Scion scientists, led by Dr Carol Rolando, have confirmed that most effective weed management treatment is the current industry standard of a combination of terbuthylazine and hexazinone and that the risks to the environment from these two herbicides are low. Both herbicides were recently re-assessed by Forest Stewardship Council and have been removed from the highly hazardous list. A 4 ½ minute video discussing some of the issues around weed control in planted forests is available below.
