Timberlands Limited are not issuing hunting and recreational permits under Covid-19 level 3 restrictions. This is primarily so we can focus on the health and safety of people returning to work.

Level 3 hunting conditions:
– No motorised hunting is permitted, which accounts for the majority of hunting in Kaingaroa Forest.
– People must keep local, and the Kaingaroa Forest estate operates across three regions (BOP, Waikato and Hawkes Bay), making it difficult for hunters to adhere to this rule.

At this stage the number one priority is to transition workers back into the forest safely while operating under Covid-19 level 3 restrictions.
