Mitchpine is an established family run wood product manufacturer of sawn timber, wooden poles, and fence posts located on the border of the Wellington, Horowhenua and Manawatu regions. Mitchpine has a unique product mix of sawn timber, wooden poles, fence posts, and produces its own biomass to fuel the boilers.
Mitchpine has a keen focus on sustainability and as a wood processor taking delivery of logs that have been defected in the forest, we think the industry can do things differently. We are investing in equipment that will utilise the whole tree, therefore reducing forestry residues/slash left in the forest and maximising the return for the forestry owner by creating a value-add product. Recent extreme weather events have highlighted the issue of forestry residues/slash left in the forest causing considerable damage to infrastructure as they were washed downstream. Now is the time for industry to look at different ways of doing things to reduce forestry residues/slash being left in the forest.
Mitchpine are expanding to produce biomass fuels and other wood fibre products and are reaching out for expressions of interest in a potential partnership, thereby allowing each partner to leverage their existing operations and environmental obligations. Being based near Levin, Mitchpine is well situated to supply Wellington/ Port, Palmerston North, Wanganui, and the wider Lower North Island.
