Abstract: This paper explores the potential of the sustainable management of regenerating totara on Northland farmland for achieving biodiversity conservation outcomes. Sustainable totara management can provide a direct incentive for landowners to retain and better manage regenerating forests, which are otherwise of little or no economic value, while also providing a range of other benefits to the landowner and society more generally. In particular, private native forests complement protected conservation land, contributing to landscape scale biodiversity conservation across Te Tai Tokerau. (no keywords)
