Many forest owners will be interested in the progress of a National Environmental Standard (NES) for plantation forestry in New Zealand. The NES aims to achieve improved consistency for the management of plantation forests under the RMA.

September saw another export log price increase, building on what is becoming a strong rebound from the dramatic slide in prices during the April to July 2014 period.
