Taking on Wilding Pines

The spread of wilding pines from farm shelter belts and forestry plantings into tussock and less intensively grazed introduced grasses and native scrub vegetation has become a major issue throughout parts of the central North Island and across the South Island.


Log Market - August

Prices for export logs delivered to NZ ports in August dropped an average of $4/m3 from July prices. As per the last couple of months this drop has been driven by the strengthening of the NZD against the USD. Exporters competing for supply at some ports and a slight increase in sale prices in China has buffered the downward movement in prices.
