Report on status of wilding conifers in New Zealand now available

A report commissioned by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) on the status of wilding pine trees in New Zealand was released last month.

The Ministry commissioned Pacific Eco-logic Limited to develop a current state report on wilding pine trees (also known as wild conifers). The report assesses the wilding conifer situation across the country and identifies ways to improve wilding conifer management.

MPI worked with various stakeholders to complete the report including the Wilding Conifer Management Group (WCMG).

The report’s recommendations have been endorsed by the broad range of parties represented at the WCMG.

MPI will lead further work to implement the key recommendations of the report through the development of a non-regulatory strategy.

The report is now available on the WCMG website —
