MZ3's vision is a society based on wood. TreeTopia.

MZ3's mission is to utilise trees and plant more.

MZ3 is a mechatronic engineering company based in Perth Western Australia. We are obsessed with process and machine efficiency.  Since 2005 we have been inventing, designing, manufacturing, installing, maintaining and operating customised machines that improve efficiency. Our customers operate in a wide range of industry sectors but mainly wood.

What does MZ3 mean.

The MZ means Machine Zoo as we build a lot of different machines. The biggest problems in the world today can be solved simply by using renewable materials like wood and replanting trees. We want to help make that happen so the 3 means;

  1. Care for the land, water and air - Reforestation will restore soils, retain water in the landscape and remove CO2 from the air.
  2. Care for plants and animals - Reforestation provides habitat to help stop and prevent further species loss.
  3. Care for people - provide meaningful jobs, a right livelihood and a nice place to live - automate tedious, dangerous, dusty and noisy jobs and provide clean and green job opportunities in plant nurseries, tree planting, food and timber forestry and nice places to live near these job opportunities.

The world has a net loss of 14bn trees per year so there is a lot of planting to be done just to replace those and then we have to plant much more to offset the tree losses over the past few thousand years.

Our impact on Earth can be defined by the formula:

how efficiently we use our resources - reduce waste 

times ..  the amount of resources we use - our personal consumption - buy less

times ..  our population.

MZ3 works to help improve how efficiently we use of resources.  We make machines that specifically encourage the efficient use of wood and occasional lightweight steel in buildings (our shelters).  We encourage organic agroforestry and local manufacturing. To help restore the environment and ensure there is enough wood for the future we are developing ultra high speed tree planting machines designed to reclaim degenerated farms, rangelands and man-made deserts.
