Research article Forest management and research in indigenous production forests.
D. A. Franklin and A. E. Beveridge
Indigenous production forests are a fast-dwindling resource but sufficient research has been done to allow a considerable expansion of current, small-scale management operations and ensure permanent production of some indigenous timbers. While the beech, beech/podocarp and dense rimu forests on the western side of the South Island offer the best prospects for management, carefully-controlled selective logging of podocarp forests elsewhere, particularly in central North Island, would perpetuate these forests and preserve forest values additional to timber production.
