High Conservation Value Forests

NZ Forest Managers has four High Conservation Value Forests (HCVs), as defined by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Two of these HCV areas have been recently identified following indigenous vegetation assessments completed within Lake Taupo and Rotoaira Forests.

All of the identified HCV areas are managed in accordance with the NZ FSC Standard for Plantation Forestry.

Holistic Management Approach

NZ Forest Managers Ltd (NZFM) is very aware that there are many natural resources located throughout the estate it manages. Preserving the environment and protecting the health and safety of staff and contractors are high priorities for NZFM. Being aware of any positive and/or adverse environmental effects occurring within the forests is also extremely important.
