Forestry Infrastructure

Providing a full service from start to finish

Our forestry infrastructure experience is extensive. Providing road construction services for forestry was the foundation of our business when we started more than 50 years ago.

Our depth of knowledge allows us to provide expertise and support for forest owners to help them achieve the best results for their forest estates.

Taylors team includes people with senior management experience within forest owning companies. We understand the forestry business and its requirements.

Forestry Work We Do

We have all the skills to design, layout and construct roads and landings for forest harvesting operations, including post-harvest clean up.

We have a deep knowledge of the region and its different soil types that are prevalent here. This means that we understand what we have to work with and what’s needed to achieve the best environmental outcomes. Our active environmental management is of a very high standard. We are skilled in the latest techniques for reducing dust and managing water control and sediment generation.

Our forestry team is complemented by our quarrying capability, either supplying gravel directly from our own quarry, or developing and crushing from in-forest borrow areas where they are available.

Forestry Infrastructure Equipment

We have more than 30 machine operators constructing forestry roads using a wide range of equipment, including excavators, bulldozers, trucks, and graders. Each item of plant is fully fitted out and strengthened to operate in the challenging forest environment and to meet all safety requirements.


We provide roading services for each of the major forest owners in the Nelson Tasman area. This amounts to roading for more than 1.5 million tonnes of harvest per annum.
