Australian educational institutes have a much greater focus on native forestry and environmental management than is the case in New Zealand - where a greater proportion of our training is targeted on production forestry. A lot more harvesting of and general experience in, native forestry occurs in Australia compared to New Zealand. Australian foresters can sometimes bring those values and management methods with them when managing production forests. Fire risk is the second major contrast between NZ and Australian forest management. I arrived in Australia during drought and the transition to being more fire fighter than forester over summer was unusual, but an enjoyable part of the job.
