Ngati Hine Forestry Trust

Haere Mai - Welcome

The Ngati Hine Forestry Trust is a large and rapidly expanding Maori land trust. The Trust lands of approximately 5,600 hectares are centred alongside the small rural towns of Moerewa and Kawakawa. The Trust has over 4,200 registered owners represented by seven Trustees who govern the Trust under the authority of a Trust Order pursuant to Section 244 of Te Ture Whenua Maori Act 1993.

The Trust has substantial interests in two forest leases and owns four horticultural orchards in the Kerikeri area. The Trust has also created a social housing portfolio owning homes in Moerewa, Kawakawa and Kaikohe.

Wealth creation through these and other interests has seen the Trust assets grow in value from $500,000 in 1980 to $28,000,000 today.

The Trust continues to diversify its interests for both commercial and social reasons. The Trust is active in the preservation and enhancement of its indigenous forest areas and is from time to time involved with training programmes within the Ngati Hine rohe.

The Trust has its administrative Head Office in Whangarei with another satellite centre at Moerewa.

Na reira, me whakawhetai, me whakamoemiti i tona ingoa tapu i te mea i kauparea nga mea he ki te taha, ko nga mea pai i waihotia mai kia tutuki ai he painga mo te nuinga.

E te iwi whanui o Ngati Hine, tena ra koutou katoa. Tena ra koutou e noho mai na i enei kainga o tatou. Ko tenei te whakamihi atu ki a koutou katoa e uru mai ana ki te hononga rorohiko kia whiwhi ai nga rongo hou e pa ana ki nga ngahere o Ngati Hine. Na reira nau mai, piki mai, whakatau mai. Whakatau mai ki roto i tenei whare ki te kimi i nga mohiotanga me nga ahuatanga hou o te Ngahere o Ngati Hine.

Haere mai, pikauhia mai nga tini mate o tena, o tena o nga pito o te motu, kia whakahuihuia ki o matou; kia tangihia, kia mihia, kia poroporoakitia. Na reira e nga mate haere. Haere ki te po nui, ki te po tangotango, ki te po e u ai te moe. Na reira haere, haere, haere.

Kati ra e te whanau. Ko te tumanako hoki kia pai ai tou haerere i roto i tenei whare, ki te rapu, ki te kimi i enei ahuatanga katoa e pa ana ki o tatou ngahere. Ma Ihowa koutou e manaaki, mana koutou e tiaki kia roa ai ou ra ki runga i te mata o te whenua.
