About Us

Fernwood Products (New Zealand) Limited are manufacturers of quality Tree Fern products for the reptile and orchid industries. Using Native Tree Ferns that are only found in New Zealand, our team have developed unique manufacturing processes that produce only the best quality products, and with 25 years experience, we know what we're talking about. 

100% Sustainably Harvested

We are committed to sustainable harvesting and follow the strict harvesting standards and regulations as set by the New Zealand Government.

Most of New Zealand's Native Forests are found in National Parks which means Tree Ferns in these areas can not be harvested and are protected for future generations. Our raw materials are sourced from renewable resource on privately owned forest land and before any harvesting can commence, we have to satisfy a number of Local Government Regulations. These regulations are designed to protect important areas of our environment including native wildlife and water ways.

Over the past 25 years, Fernwood has developed a robust system that ensures all harvesting is managed sustainably and that the environment is left as it was found - intact and undisturbed. New Zealand leads the world when it comes to protecting its natural resources and we are proud to offer our products knowing that New Zealand Tree Ferns will be around for our future generations to enjoy. When you buy a Fernwood Product you know it has been created with both you and the environment in mind.

Meet the Team

Alan Ford

Alan has been harvesting New Zealand Tree Fern for 25 years and can talk 'tree fern' for hours. He knows more about New Zealand Tree Fern than anyone you'll ever meet, and knows that our native species provides the best quality product for reptile and orchid enthusiasts alike. Alan deals with our new wholesale and retail clients, as well as heading up our Manufacturing Team. He knows the manufacturing process inside-out and from start to finish, so if you've got questions about potential uses, product quality or possibilities for manufacture, he's the man to talk to.

Rob Price

Rob is Fernwood's logistics man. He's the man behind the scenes making sure all the boxes get ticked along the way. He's a bit of a perfectionist, which means every shipment of New Zealand Tree Fern is sent out on time and carrying only the best quality products. He's the guy who crunches numbers, measures boxes and makes sure you get what you ask for. If you've got any questions about getting your order from here to where-ever you are, then have a chat with Rob.
