Te Ngahere – Native Forest Management
Te Ngahere Ltd
59 Patiki Rd

Te Ngahere is a solution focused organisation that specialises in providing both public and private clients with excellent best practice services. The service covers a range of ecological restoration services of native bush (animal and plant pest management).

Our main areas of expertise have evolved from an initial desire to restore and protect New Zealand’s biodiversity and native forest environment. These have morphed into ecological restoration (protecting and enhancing), and consultancy (advice and solutions), specializing in invasive species management.

We are operationally grounded and have built our reputation from providing and building solutions that work in the real world. This means that, whether you speak to us about an ecological assessment, pest management and restoration frameworks, you are going to get an effective solution that will encompass community, environment and financial concepts.
