Forestry

Being environmentally responsible and working towards a sustainable future aligns with our ethos and principles at Calder Stewart.

What started off 30 years ago as a few trees planted in gullies on a local Milton farm has now become a fully-grown and mature forest. Over the same period of time, we’ve become one of the major private forest owners in the Otago region.

While our interest in forestry is a business investment, we believe cooperating with nature has its benefits. We plant more than 120,000 tree seedlings every year that, once mature, will absorb over 30 tonnes of carbon per hectare per year.
