Hamish Levack Forestry

Hamish is a fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Forestry, and past President of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association.

Hamish Levack owns off-grid accommodation nestled within a sixty hectare lifestyle block, near Paraparaumu. It comprises a commercial pine forest, substantial native forest enclaves, and trials of alternative exotic tree species. The block rises to the west, where wide views of Kapiti and the South Island can be enjoyed. The Tararua Forest Park abuts the block in the east. This provides an outstanding variety of tramping, hunting and walking opportunities. Visitors are also only fifteen minutes away from Queen Elizabeth Park and Whareroa Farm. They feature memorials to the WWII U.S. marines, heritage trams, horse riding, and extensive coastal, farm and bush walks.
Hamish is a past president of the NZ Farm forestry Association, and helps the Ministry of Primary Industries to run courses on basic forestry for farmers interested in offsetting their greenhouse gas emissions by planting trees. In the near future he and his wife intend to be looking to welcome visitors to stay overnight in a converted sailing boat at Maungakotukutuku and learn something about forestry management.

Plant a tree
Forest walk

Overnight accommodation


Maungakotukutuku Road, Paraparaumu 5032, New Zealand
