The Fairway Forest Partnership was formed in August 2000. Planting took place in the winter of 2001 and the forest is forecast to be harvested in 2029. In 2021 Fairway had an estimated net stocked area of 353 hectares.
The Fairway property is part of the Wyangala block located 57 kilometres west of Gisborne and 70 km north of Wairoa. Access to the forest is gained from Bushy Knoll Road, 12 km from the junction with State Highway 36.
