A strategic response to rising international demand and pricing for commodities combined with the oppurtunity of New Zealand's sizable 'wall of wood' forestry stock comes with the launch of Kiwi Forestry International Limited (Kiwi Forestry). The new structure launched effective 1st August 2011 with the merger between Smith & Davies Limited and HarvestPro New Zealand Limited. Kiwi Forestry will provide the industry with a major integrated resource providing seamless operational delivery from 'forest floor to market door'. The new company is already classified as an industry leader in New Zealand through the existing operations and activity of the two merged entities. Privately owned, the company aggregates operations incorporating forestry planning, harvesting, engineering, transportation (general and log), civil works and specialised resource management.
