Abstract: We explore the opportunities for afforestation in the Hawke’s Bay region of New Zealand to reduce soil erosion and to provide economic and environmental benefits. The work analyses broad-scale spatial information across a range of tree species and forest systems drawing on existing forestry projects and knowledge. The tools and information produced will help decision-makers understand the implications of different afforestation options to develop a selfsustaining regional afforestation strategy.
