About Us

Our Mission

Every property and situation is different and as such, there is no one size fits all.

We are always coming across new opportunities to provide a solution, and we are happy to ask outside specialists for help, to meet our client’s requirements.

We may start with clients, however we end up with friends with trees.

Your Land, Your Choice.

Phil Orme

ETS, Forestry and Land Use Consultant

Registered Forest Consultant


Phil has been involved with the forest industry since 1980 through every aspect from seed collection through to planting, thinning, harvest, logistics and export operations, most recently as an ETS and Land-use Specialist for Woodnet and South Island Manager (Land-use and Operations) for a nationwide forestry company before forming Orme & Associates, to better service the rural community’s needs.

The single biggest change during this time has been the introduction of the ETS and the opportunity for landowners to be rewarded for doing the right thing by the land, with an ongoing income stream that has never existed before, with species that have often been over looked. It does however come with rules and obligations that, if not fully understood, can make life interesting, with some very serious consequences.
