Timberlands West Coast Limited   (CBDO)
1990 - c.2009


In 1987 the New Zealand Forest Service was replaced by a state-owned enterprise called the New Zealand Forestry Corporation. A subsidiary of this company, New Zealand Timberlands Limited, was created to manage all state-owned production forests.

The Government subsequently decided to sell many of the exotic forests it owned, and in the course of this looked at selling its forests on the West Coast. However, because of the unique situation on the West Coast special management was required. Accordingly, in 1990, a new state-owned enterprise was created - Timberlands West Coast Ltd.
