The Case for Production Forestry in Westland

G.J. Molloy

The important role of forestry and the forest-based industries in the economy of Westland is discussed, and the need is stressed to replace indigenous forest as it is logged with exotic forest to maintain this industry.
The history of exotic forest establishment is reviewed, and the current rate of new planting is compared with the rate at which indigenous forest is being cut over. Future utilization possibilities are considered on a regional and national basis for the exotic forest now being established.
