Some comments on forest planning and the forestry development plan for Otago

R.K. Grant

Both capital and electricity are likely to place constraints on the development of New Zealand's forest-processing industry, In such circumstances forest planning for individual regions viewed in isolation gives an incomplete picture which may give rise to misleading conclusions.
In the Forestry Development Plan for the Otago Planning District, the estimates of the cost of supporting domestic industry do not include the necessary adjustments in the exchange rate or the cost of export incentives. Within the framework of the analysis presented in the plan, adjusted figures support a log export proposal rather than the major wood-processing plant envisaged.
