Our Aim

Our aim is to ensure that the research funded by the forest growing levy and by industry members is well focused, strategic and aligned with industry priorities. It is also to ensure that research programmes delivery outcomes that add true value to levy payers, to industry investors and to the New Zealand economy. 

FOA will assist the  New Zealand forestry sector to remain internationally competitive and a viable land use to ensure that the community benefits,  not only from the direct commercial value of forests,  but from the wider contribution trees make to the environment through biodiversity, carbon dioxide sequestration, water quality and recreational opportunities.
