We aim to be the leading forest company in New Zealand; creating value by growing People, Products, Partners and Prosperity

Sumitomo Corporation and Summit Forests are committed to New Zealand and its people. Sumitomo business must not only benefit Sumitomo, but also bring benefit to the country and society it operates in.

It is immensely important for Summit Forests to work in partnership with local Iwi. Our aim is not only to find solutions which help us to manage our estate in a manner that benefits the local community and its people, but to develop opportunities to grow together for current and future generations. We can:

  • Develop a business/partnership/capital solution to progress any joint venture idea;
  • Provide development and training opportunities for local people; and
  • Assist shareholders transition from land owner to forest owner and eventually (through employment of people) forest managers.
