Abstract: New Zealandís Nationally Declared Commitment (NDC) to be net carbon neutral by 2050 is less than 28 years away, the average age of a radiata rotation. Over the last 28 years there have been many changes in the forest industry and a number of lessons have been learnt that can be applied when looking to the future. Going forward up to 2050, this paper identifies 12 'challenges'. To achieve the potential of our forest sector these challenges need to be addressed if we are to secure our forestry future.
