Survey of Actual Native Forest Restoration Costs
Te Uru Rākau – New Zealand Forest Service has commissioned Forbes Ecology Limited to survey of the actual costs associated with native forest restoration activities. The work relates to an evaluation of native forest grant schemes and also Government’s obligations to investigate native forestry recommendations made by the Climate Change Commission.
The survey presents a very important opportunity to gather emprical data on actual forest restoration costs. We recognise your experience in this area and encourage you to participate in the survey. The survey has been grouped into six topic areas and a separate automated survey form is available for each area (links below). The six topic areas which we are seeking information on actual costs as they relate to restoration of native forest ecosystems are:
- Forest restoration planting
- Land retirement and reversion to native forest
- Enrichment planting
- Remnant management
- Animal pest control
- Plant pest control
Also, the more people who are able to contribue to this survey the better – so please, if you can recommend people that have experience in these areas that might be willing to particpate in this survey please do so Survey responses are automatically anonymised.
Please can you complete the survey by Monday 18th October 2021. If you wish to discuss this in further detail or would like to participate but cannot contribute before 18 October, please contact:
