The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) develops currenltly with stakeholders a strategy (download here) to improve the management of wilding conifers in New Zealand.
The strategy aims to enable key parties to address the spread of wilding conifers, and contain or eradicate established areas of wilding conifers by 2030. The strategy sets out a number of high level actions to support that goal.
MPI has worked closely with a working group of key stakeholders to develop the draft strategy. The Working Group includes representatives from; the forestry and farming industries, regional and district councils, Department of Conservation, Land Information New Zealand, New Zealand Defence Force, SCION, and community groups.
This strategy builds on an MPI commissioned Pacific Eco-Logic status report on wilding conifer management that was developed with input from members of the New Zealand Wilding Conifer Management Group. This report can be found here
