In 2002 the Forest Industry Contractors Association was formed to give a common voice on relevant issues and to foster development and improvement in the New Zealand forestry contracting industry.
FICA currently has approximately 150 member companies made up of logging contractors, silviculture contractors and a range of associate members. FICA is governed by a board of experienced contractors and a number of committees. Contact us if you wish to be involved with the committee.
FICA provides practical workshops, a national discount scheme, regional networks, industry developments, field visits and a national voice for the industry.
