We understand that the forestry industry is complex with very specific areas of risk. Tailored risk advice is therefore essential as there are numerous issues to consider, and the insurance protection available varies significantly.

We specialise in Standing Timber cover. While some traditional forestry insurance only covers fire damage, Aon is able to offer a much broader range of cover including loss of trees from fire, wind, landslip and earthquake, as well as firefighting charges, re-establishing costs, carbon, claims preparation, loss of harvested timber and removal of debris.

In addition, we can tailor other important lines of insurance that forest owners need to consider such as Public Liability, Statutory Liability, Marine Cargo, Trade Credit and more.

The extensive cover that Aon offers ensures that you can feel secure in the knowledge that your business is protected from small and large scale events.

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. Contact us today to find out more about our innovative forestry insurance solutions.

Forestry owners who are members of New Zealand Farm Forestry Association or New Zealand Farm Owners Association can obtain a quote or enquire about their current cover by contacting Tiffany Robertson - 0800 800 398
