NZ Forest Service contribution to plantation forestry

W. R. J. Sutton

The Forest Service's very considerable contribution to plantation forestry has few, if any, equals in the world. The Service was fortunate in having visionary leaders in management and in research at key times in its 68 years of existence. These gave New Zealand not only a technological lead in plantation forestry, but also a whole new industry which satisfies both internal wood demand and an increasing export market. These plantations have been a very significant contribution to the conservation of New Zealand's indigenous forest.
