The New Zealand Forest Owners Association (FOA) represents the owners of New Zealand's commercial plantation forests. The association and its members are committed to the highest standards of sustainable silviculture, environmental practice and workforce safety.

Plantation forestry is science-based and highly innovative. It is New Zealand's third largest export industry and a major regional employer. It is the industry with the greatest potential to transform New Zealand into a carbon-neutral economy where all land-based industries are environmentally sustainable.
