Forest Protection

Action Forest Management fire crew dampening a fire

The combined experience of our staff is invaluable in formulating and implementing an effective protection policy for your forest. There are all sorts of factors that can damage your forest, but whatever the risk we have a strategy to manage it.


Possum, goat, or fungal attack can all damage your crop. AFM can advise on the best strategy and manage the process for you. In the case of possums or goats this can include management of skilled hunters and in the case of Dothistroma attack using aerial spray to mitigate the effects of the disease. Our experience extends to the control of noxious weeds with a number of strategies employed to ensure our clients’ forests comply with the Biosecurity Act.


We offer a full access management service with experience in the use of hidden cameras to monitor activity in high-risk areas. Our team is highly skilled at managing security infrastructure including gates and fences as well as issuing trespass warnings. We can also administer the issue of permits for hunting and other recreation activities. We are always happy to advise on the best way to protect your assets.
