I remember meeting Richard Bourne in the Auckland airport in January 2000. From that day on Roger Dickie NZ has been an indispensable tool enabling me to invest in NZ forestry. I remember flying with Roger over the North Island looking for the right property, and when we found it he negotiated the purchase and turned me over to the legal and accounting team necessary for an American to purchase coastal land and change its use to forestry. Since then the team at Roger Dickie Forestry has built roads, planted and maintained a forest and olive grove and overseen construction of new buildings. As a family we look forward to a long and profitable relationship with the firm.
