Forestry companies buying vast amounts of New Zealand’s land


Originally posted here in 2020 … note the role of forestry going forwards. The Gabrielle floods & the devastation they caused. The poisoning of the land. The sucking up of our water resources. Barry Smith (NZ evangelist, investigative journalist) cited long ago, ’80s and earlier, that NZ was marked out for pine trees. Each country in the planned Old World Order, would have one product only… hence enforcing the global village concept … each country requires the other for its product … NO self sufficiency... thinly disguised lockdown basically. Remember the Arnold Toynbee quote – International Affairs, p.809, November 1931 … EWNZ

“We are at present working discreetly, with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” …  

A  foreign-owned forestry company has bought up more than 77,000 hectares of forests in just four years to become the third largest landowner in New Zealand.

Australia-based New Forests Asset Management runs several investment funds here through several subsidiaries.

RNZ journalist Kate Newton has been investigating who owns New Zealand for several months.

She says the speed at which New Forests amassed the land is astonishing.

“They have gone from owning nothing in 2015, as far as we can tell, to now owning 77 and a half thousand hectares. they had an Overseas Investment Office approval just go through last month to buy another piece of land,”  Newton says.

New Forests calls itself a “sustainable real assets investment manager offering leading-edge strategies in forestry, land management, and conservation”.

It has more than $5 billion Australian in assets under management globally with investments in Australia, New Zealand, US  and Southeast Asia.
