Woodco is a pan-industry body which represents the common interests of the forestry and wood processing sectors.

The Wood Council of New Zealand (Woodco) was successfully incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 on 2 March 2006.

Woodco’s members are the following associations:

1. Forest Owners

2. Wood Processors and Manufacturers

3. Farm Forestry

4. Forest Industry Contractors


A major study report released by the Wood Council highlights the need for by-products from established industries like sawmilling if New Zealand is to develop profitable businesses based on emerging technologies, like bio-fuels and bio-chemicals - further information and the reports are available here.

Woodco's Industry Strategic Action Plan was launched at the ForestWood 2012 conference in Wellington.  You can download a copy of the plan here.
