Extensive Definition

Timberlands West Coast Limited is a New Zealand state-owned enterprise based on the West Coast.
It was formed to manage the native and exotic forests on the West Coast of the defunct New Zealand Forest Service.
A large quantity of internal documents relating to the operation of its secret Public Relations campaign to support its logging operations in the 1990s against environmental groups was published in the book Secrets and Lies (Hager) in 1999.
In February 2008 Trevor Mallard the State owned Enterprises Minister, announced that the assets of Timberlands will transfer to Crown Forestry since the company has had poor financial results. Once the transfer of forests is completed the company will be wound up.
