Abstract: While the total area of plantation forests in both Australia and New Zealand is fairly similar (~2m hectare each), there are considerable differences in ownership, species distribution and recent rates of new land establishment. The following analysis has been carried out using data from the NZ National Exotic Forest Description1 and the Australian National Plantation Inventory2 for the period 1995-2009. The total plantation areas in each country, broken down by that in public and private ownership, are shown in Figure 1. Areas of new land planting are shown in Figure 2 with the Australian figures broken down into hardwood and softwood. Figure 3 shows the species distributions in 2005. (no keywords)
