The management of Kauri forests: a historical review of government policy and a proposal for the future.

I. L. Barton

The history of government and national attitudes toward kauri forestry in New Zealand from the early 19th century to the present is examined. The most serious shortcomings have been the inability to recognize that kauri management may have a place in New Zealand forest practice, and the stop-go attitude toward research which has held back any real progress.
The Government's "New Kauri Policy" is discussed and suggestions made for its better implementation.
