Macrocarpa Building Materials (classified as a Cypress)

We have a regular, consistent supply and are trusted as a miller by timber merchants. We sell direct to builders, carpenters and the public. Our timber is compliant with New Zealand's building code and is suitable for a wide range of internal and external uses. It is not widely known that macrocarpa is rated as similar durability to H3.1 treated pine in the NZ Building Code.
Macrocarpa is also a hardy, durable wood that weathers well to produce a smooth silver finish without any treatment.

Macrocarpa Kitsets & Consumer Products

Macrocarpa kitsets are a perfect way to furnish a garden or outdoor dining place. In homes, schools and parks.  Our Macrocarpa is featured at the Auckland Botanical Gardens, the Viaduct and the Wellington Waterfront. The MacDirect planter range is ever popular with inner city gardeners.

Being untreated makes Macrocarpa an ideal timber for planters, seats and tables where chemical treatments are not advised. Macrocarpa timber kitsets also weather exceptionally well in New Zealand's harsh sun, making them ideal long term investments. (contact us now)

Plantation Logs Produce A More Consistent Timber

At MacDirect, we source our logs from sustainable plantations, providing a consistent supply and are able to fill all orders from large to small. The true test of our timber’s reliability is the fact that it is trusted by major timber retailers  throughout the country.


Commonly seen "shelter belt" Macrocarpa are usually sold as a salvage operation. At MacDirect these logs are used for low grade specified timber use.

Sustainably Sourcing Logs Secures The Future Of New Zealand Timber

Sourcing Macrocarpa from New Zealand’s best plantations ensures that any trees harvested are quickly and suitably replaced with new growth. There have been consistent plantings of Cypress, especially by NZFF (private farm foresters) in recent years. This is a renewable resource with a 25-30 year life cycle.
