407.7930ha freehold one title

Located within 50-80km of several processing mills.
Port of Bluff approximately 90km

Stock - 131.6ha Pinus Radiata (G17) 17 + years
This excludes unplanted or failed gaps that occur with the establishment of any crop, year planted 1998-2001

Stock - 173ha Douglas Fir 16 years +. This excludes unplanted or failed gaps that occur with the establishment of any crop, year planted 1999-2001

Stock - 5ha Macrocarpa 16 years, year planted 2001

A further 97ha could be grazed i.e. beef or some could be planted out.

The major value drivers for this forest are; species (radiata pine & D Fir). Terrain rolling to medium hill, moderate distance to mills and port. It's only 10 years from harvest age for the radiata (6.5-7 metre high pruned). Costs moderate because of pre- existing roading infrastructure and 3 fire ponds.
Pruning and thinning over the past 17 years and track maintenance have created a solid forestry investment or retirement fund. This property was planted with the environment issues in mind i.e. planted well back from existing streams and is ETS unregistered and this would be an added value particularly in regards to the Douglas Fir blocks.
A six bunk hut is located on the property and is currently used for forest workers and recreational deer and pig hunting, all located 60 minutes from Invercargill.
