Abstract: The positive role that forests play in our community should not be understated and is well articulated in the Forest Policy framework that the New Zealand Institute of Forestry (NZIF) issued in 2018. Forests, more than other land uses, provide society with significant public benefits in addition to those that accrue to the owner of the forest. Public benefits include carbon sequestration and storage, erosion and flood mitigation, maintenance of water quality, biodiversity, recreation, landscape, spiritual and cultural factors and more. In our role as forestry professionals, we owe it to the community to ensure all current and future forests in this country contribute to the long-term success of New Zealand.
