Insurance solutions for the Forestry Industry

At Aon we understand that the forestry industry is complex. Having specialist expertise and experience is a crucial component to shaping the robust insurance solutions required to protect a business in this industry.
As leaders in the forestry sector, our brokers are aware of the challenges faced by the industry and specific areas of risk. Our innovative approach to risk solutions has resulted in a range of specialised and tailored insurance cover for forestry businesses of all sizes, right across New Zealand. Traditional forestry insurance can often only cover fire damage, but at Aon we specialise in Standing Timber cover and offer our clients a much broader range of cover, including:

  • Earthquake
  • Explosion
  • Fire
  • Impact
  • Landslip, as a direct consequence of an earthquake or volcanic eruption
  • Lightning
  • Malicious acts
  • Volcanic eruption

Expert risk advice is essential as there are numerous issues to consider, and the insurance protection available varies significantly. Our brokers will offer you professional advice around other important lines of insurance and optional extensions, such as:

  • Carbon
  • Claims preparation
  • Firefighting charges
  • Loss of harvested timber
  • Re-establishing costs
  • Removal of debris
  • Windstorm

Our specialist brokers act for more forestry owners than any other broker in New Zealand and we have a dedicated specialist claims support team to assist our customers at times when it matters most.
