EWC, Hikurangi Forest Farms, Ernslaw One, and PF Olsens – the Forest Companies operating in the area, wish to acknowledge the devasting impact of this extreme weather event, on the Uawa and Tolaga Bay community, and empathise with them. All three companies have been up to assess the damage and as a priority, have offered full support and resources to GDC & Tairawhiti Roads to get roads open, ensuring access for land owners, and will do further assessments via helicopter tomorrow. The second phase will be clean up and working with affected land owners.
