Forest Service Record Role of the Forest Service in conservation of native state forests
The New Zealand Forest Service's contribution to the conservation of native forests has not been widely acknowledged. The department has introduced policies for less wasteful utilization, better management systems, the replacement of native timbers with plantation-grown wood, and the reservation of a comprehensive network of representative ecosystem reserves. Nearly 400,000 ha of native forest had been, or was in the process of being, reserved as Ecological Areas as at April 30, 1986. (no keywords)
