It is based on a committed management team of professional foresters and backed up by qualified technicians and data analysts that provide credible solutions across the sector.

Maori Connection

We are proud of our Maori heritage and the influence it brings to the business culture. Interpine believes our Maori values in oranga wairua, oranga whanau, oranga whenua will survive any circumstance if we can continue to embrace our role as kaitiaki, the primary focus being the health and wellbeing of all peoples. These values are infused into Interpine services strengthening our commitment to all those we work with; a unique characteristic that sets Interpine apart.

Quality Managment Systems

Interpine has had a quality assurance code since 1993.  This continues to ensure that quality systems, policy and procedures are established for all operations.  These align with the statutory regulations of the Bush Code, Labor Department Act, Resource Management, OSH and Transport Department Regulations.
