At Juken New Zealand Ltd (JNL) their success depends on and reflects their commitment to the environment. Their customers demand it, and they respond to that demand through
environmentally sensitive sustainable forestry and manufacturing processes. JNL practices and products deliver on that.
Not only is JNL’s very purpose environmentally friendly by replacing the use of non-sustainable hardwoods from around the world with sustainably grown radiata pine. JNL also strive to reduce
their impact on the environment through reuse and recycling practices to minimise their impact on the environment — all while maintaining a sustainable resource for future generations.
Committed to the Environment
Professional forest management is key to producing the right trees for making the right products. JNL take pride in the way they manage and take care of their forests — from land preparation, seed selection, planting, disease, and pest control, through to thinning, pruning and harvesting. It’s a deliberate, methodical and continuous process to ensure that the product requirements are met.
JNL intensively prunes their forests in order to grow a high-value clear wood resource for processing in their plants.
JNL has 40,000 hectares of predominantly radiata pine plantation forest, across two North Island regional locations: Wairarapa and East Coast. JNL forests are close to their mill operations so freshly cut logs can be efficiently delivered for processing.
“Juken New Zealand Ltd will leave things in a better situation than we started to ensure sustainability for our future generations to come," says David Hilliard General Manager of Forestry, Juken New Zealand Ltd.
