Why Invest in Forestry

New Zealand forest management, tending practices, processing technology and genetic improvements are second to none. There are still opportunities to further improve our skills at growing radiata pine, but the level of knowledge, skills and technology already available give New Zealand forest growers and investors alike a considerable advantage for some time to come.

Converting from Pines to Pastures? Control Weeds before …

 · With recent low timber prices, there is renewed interest in converting pine stands to pasture lands. This is a costly practice, but many landowners are taking on the challenge. Converting timberlands to pasture involves the use of prescribed fire, clearing land with a dozer, and disking up the area to be planted to permanent pasture.

The hydrology and sediment regime of a 0.10-km 2 pasture, 0.34-km 2 pine forest, and 0.28-km 2 native forest catchment were compared. The highly per­ meable pumice soils of these catchments resulted in generally low annual stormflow yields (0.54-5.2% of gross rainfall) and consequently low annual sediment yields (4.0-27.0 t/km 2 /yr). The pasture catchment had the highest average flows.

Forage responses to lime and nitrogen fertiliser on land …

Annual pasture DM production increased significantly with increasing levels of N fertiliser application from 5.3 t DM/ha with no N applied to 7.5 t DM/ha at 400 kg N/ha. The observed response to N addition was mainly attributed to the low N status of the soil following conversion, which in turn was compounded by the ongoing decomposition of large quantities of mulched woody debris.

Control of gorse (Ulex europaeus) in dryland pasture …

The effect of crop sequence, pasture species mixture and nitrogen fertiliser on gorse establishment was monitored over 23 months in land converted from pine forest to a dryland sheep pasture. There were fewer gorse plants in plots sown initially into the forage crop triticale and then into grass legume pasture than plots sown directly into grass or grass-legume pasture.
