Long-term thinking, resilience and doing forestry differently

Adam Forbes



In forestry, today’s decisions shape the future issues we will face and our ability to address them. Given our uncertain future, now is the time to challenge the status quo in Aotearoa New Zealand’s forestry. What future will we choose, and which legacies will we leave? In this August edition, the benefits of long-term forestry trials are seen in Aotearoa and the Solomon Islands. Garrett et al. report on the Puruki forestry experiment established in response to the United Nations Hydrological Decade (1965–1974). This is an exemplary paired catchment trial looking into water yield and productivity, nutrition and carbon sequestration. A productive trial, over its 50-year duration, 67 articles have been published. This work shows the enormous value of long-term investment in forestry research.
