New Zealand has one of the world’s most successful forest industries.
And right now they are riding the tide of strong demand and high prices.
New Zealand farmers will be raking in the money.
Forest owners are enjoying the most sustained, stable and highest prices for logs ever recorded.
It’s mostly about China and export markets.
Log export markets are absolutely vital to the New Zealand forest industry.
Because the New Zealand forest industry is ALL about profitable private tree growers. Local New Zealand sawmillers have to survive in a very competitive market. This keeps them focused, efficient and hardworking. That’s business!
And for that the forest industry makes a huge contribution to the New Zealand economy.
Why can’t Tasmania have a forest industry like New Zealand?
