Welcome to the Lake Taupō Forest Trust website

Our site is for owners and beneficiaries in Lake Taupō Forest Trust and all those who are interested in the future of the Trust.

Lake Taupō Forest Trust owns or administers around 32,000 hectares of land on the eastern shores of Lake Taupō for the benefit of owners, of which around 23,000 hectares are plantation forest.

There’s also information about our land, the forests, our history and news of activities in the forest and in our community.

Owners can find information about dividends and grants, firewood, forest access, educational and work opportunities.

Pursue the items of value to their destination,
