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.
