Our engagement process.

Once a land owner makes initial contact and expresses interest in pursuing an operation, a letter of introduction is sent describing AKSFS approach and basic operations. If a landowner wishes to take it to the next step a site inspection is undertaken to ensure that a sustainable outcome can be achieved. An assessment of harvestable volumes is made and a proposal is prepared with pricing of products to optimise returns. Depending on the scale of the operation either a letter of acceptance or a formal contract is sent to the landowner.  This is the method of securing engagement for further work to be undertaken and subsequent addition of the agreed area to our Defined Forest Area.

After an agreement is signed the in-depth forest practices planning process is initiated.  This requires discussion with the landowner regarding their management objectives, further site visits, liaison with the Forest Practices Authority, the purchasing companies and contractors, prescribed neighbours and local government.
