Repurposing natural residues for good

All Azwood products, including our commercial compost and potting mixes, are made from natural wood residues that would otherwise end up in dump sites or landfills.

As part of a circular economy, we provide environmental cleanup services and use the wood residues we collect to manufacture natural products. We are helping growers improve the conditions of their soils for sustainable growth.

Why Azwood
Our commitment to the environment


At Azwood, we are committed to being environmentally responsible and creating a world where we give natural waste another purpose. 

Sustainability is central to everything we do. From sourcing materials, managing production processes, and working closely with suppliers and partners.

Rebuild your soil health

Here in New Zealand, we’ve been farming for generations. And we need more from our soils than ever before. Composting is one of the best ways to rebuild soil health. It's also the best way to sustain and enhance soils for future generations.

Here are the benefits of a commercial compost application to rebuild your soil health.

  • 01

    Enhanced crop quality for taste, size and nutritional value

  • 02

    Improved soil fertility by adding essential nutrients and organic matter

  • 03

    Promote crop health with reduced plant diseases and pests

  • 04

    Improve soil moisture and water retention to plants

  • 05

    Natural alternatives to fertilisers and harmful chemicals for suppressing weeds

Compost is a natural product that supports the microbiology in the soil. The benefits of compost application go well beyond the nutrient value. It improves soil structure and function, leading to better plant health and performance.
