Once upon a time, multiple use forestry was a ‘new, new’ thing. An industry version of the internet. It had its very own Act of Parliament aimed at making it the forest management approach used on publicly owned forest lands. It was the subject of a dedicated paper within the forestry Bachelors degree, with students who argued over whether it was a force of nature or just a blimmin’ nuisance. It also seemed to have an engaged group of followers, both within the forestry management profession and amongst its various publics. Foresters were known to study Landscape Architecture and Recreation. Soil conservation was the primary management value, and people got to enjoy the recreational and aesthetic pleasures of exotic plantation forests like Whakarewarewa and Hanmer Forests. (no keywords)
