FMG’s Forestry policy covers your farm forestry block, including trees you’ve harvested but haven’t transported yet.

Your plantation and plantation infrastructure including fencing, roads, fire breaks and dams are covered.

This policy also covers partial loss so if part of your plantation is undamaged, but it wouldn’t be best practice forestry management to retain it, we may treat the entire plantation as a total loss.

Accidental loss covered under this policy includes events caused by:

  • Fire, lightning or explosion
  • Malicious acts
  • Impact by vehicles (road, rail, or aircraft)
  • Impact by animals to trees under ten years of age
  • Earthquake, volcanic eruption and landslip as a direct result of the earthquake or eruption
