Time to Talk

Sage Partners Ltd are a wholesale insurance professional and are the managing agents for the ForestCover insurance facility into Lloyd's of London.


We designed the very first carbon credit based forest insurance policy in NZ by tailoring traditional timber policies to reflect the uniqueness of carbon based forests. We then insured the very first carbon forest in Australasia and now insure approximately 70% of carbon based forestry insurance in NZ.


With significant timber and carbon forestry insurance under management, talk to us, your broker, or forestry consultant, about how ForestCover can deliver you a quality solution for your insurance needs.

Not all insurers are created equal. It pays to know the security and legislative protection afforded to you when placing your insurance program. 

Does your insurer hold a license to transacted insurance business in New Zealand?
