Spend wisely and save thousands.


If it matters to you, it’s everything to us.

Along with harvesting costs, roading and engineering costs are the biggest drain on your returns. It’s critical to get this part of the equation right and we tailor a budget spend to save you thousands.

Ribbonwood NZ has a well-resourced team of qualified and experienced harvest planners and engineers based in our Mount Maunganui Office, with additional partners and professional capacity located throughout the country.

Do you need to build a bridge, build a road or build a landing to help process your logs and start them on their journey? No problem, we will take care of that for you and in doing so provide the best cost control possible to optimize your return.

Need a consent, transit approval, Corridor Access Request, Close Approach Powerline permit, historic places accord or Traffic Management Plan. We can establish what regulatory measures apply to your operation and go about putting in place exactly what you need to ensure you are fully compliant.
