Local community attitudes to plantation forestry, Gisborne/East Coast region.

L. Langer and T. Barnard

Rotorua, New Zealand: New Zealand Institute of Forestry.

This paper discusses the results of a survey carried out in 1999-2000 in the Gisborne/East Coast area of New Zealand to determine the attitudes of the local community to land use change and development, and to assess these attitudes towards specific industries such as forestry. It is emphasized that there is a need for more effort to be made to inform local communities about the environmental realities of present day sustainable forest management practices.
