ArborGen is a leading producer of tree seedling products and one of the largest providers of conventional and technology-enhanced seedlings to the forestry industry in Australasia. With a long history of tree improvement research and nursery production,  ArborGen is developing products designed to meet the challenges facing the commercial forestry industry.

We develop high-value tree seedling products that significantly improve the productivity of a given area of land by enabling our customers to grow trees that yield more wood per hectare with greater consistency and quality in a shorter period of time. These advanced and technology-enhanced products are designed to improve growth rates, yields, stress tolerance, uniformity, wood quality, and processing efficiency of trees.

Combining superior nursery management practices and methods, conventional tree breeding, species selection and advanced tree improvement to produce trait-specific superior trees, ArborGen is working to ensure that our customers get the most out of every tree they grow.

The ArborGen businesses in New Zealand and Australia are owned by ArborGen ANZ Limited Partnership, a consortium of New Zealand investors predominantly comprising charitable trusts and private families.


At ArborGen, we are committed to sustainable forestry, and working toward solutions that improve the productivity of well-managed, working forests to meet Australasia’s need for wood and wood products.
