Our forestry programme is New Zealand’s largest vocational forestry training institute, established more than 60 years ago by the New Zealand government to provide training in plantation forest management, sawmilling and wood manufacturing.

Domestic and international students enjoy state-of-the-art training equipment and facilities for resource management, forest operations, wood manufacturing, environmental sustainability, agriculture and horticulture.

The Waiariki National Centre for the Forest and Wood Industry, built on Mokoia Campus in 2008, is the result of a partnership between us, FITEC and University of Auckland. The centre supports courses associated with the forestry and timber industries. It includes a computer suite featuring specialist software and technology relating to forest mapping, forest operations and related timber applications.
