Why choose us

Delivering clean, renewable wood energy

In New Zealand, we have millions of hectares of forestry that has been sustainably planted for harvesting. Our commercial wood fuel products are sourced and manufactured from the left over wood residues that come from these forests so there is no shortage of supply. 

Whether it's for large energy requirements, process energy, or smaller capacity boilers, commercial wood fuel is renewable, efficient, and offers incredible cost savings.

Our commitment to the environment


We’ve made it our responsibility to make the most of wood residues that are already available to us in New Zealand. Helping reduce the effects of forestry slash on the environment and repurposing it to make clean, green energy.  

When we burn wood, it releases the same amount of carbon into the atmosphere it absorbed when it was growing. Making it carbon neutral.

Our commitment to sustainability

Wood energy does not contribute to the greenhouse effect. Organisations can reduce their greenhouse gas footprint by switching to wood energy.
