At Morice we are unique where we have complimentary skills in forestry land and tree crops.

Market Valuations

  • Land - Sale and Purchase - We provide land valuation advice for a number of the leading forestry companies throughout New Zealand. We have developed a sophisticated database of forestry transactions for analysis purposes.
  • Tree Crop - Sale and Purchase – We perform valuations of Woodlots in the Hawke’s Bay region using sophisticated inventory measuring equipment as well as growth modelling software. In addition we have formulated our own database of over 1,400 plots throughout the Hawke’s Bay region to accurately determine recoverable volumes.
  • Treaty Settlements – Morice has acted for a number of Iwi to determine the market value of the Licensor’s interest where Crown Forestry Land has been identified to return to Maori. This is a specialised area where we have developed sophisticated cashflow models to assist in the valuation of this land.
  • Insurance – We can provide valuations to assist forest owners in ensuring they have adequate cover.
  • Taxation – Income from the sale of all land with standing timber is treated as assessable income. Where standing timber is sold in conjunction with land or other assets, it is advisable to get the timber valued separately at the time of sale to determine apportionment.

Rental Valuations

  • Crown Forestry Licences – We act a number of leading forestry companies who are the Licencees of Crown Forestry land throughout New Zealand. This involves rental valuations of large tracts of forest land and adjustments to accommodate terms and conditions.
  • Land Rentals – We hold a comprehensive database of forestry land rental transactions that have occurred throughout New Zealand. Due to our continuing work in this field we have up-to-date information on hand to accurately determine land rentals New Zealand wide.
