Shrinking Forests

The NZ forest estate looks to shrink by seven thousand hectares this year. Why?

Well the Government nationalising carbon credits from forests being planted is of course a factor.

Another is that at the end of next year land owners will be fined if they convert land from forestry to other uses. So of course many forest owners are cutting them down to convert them now.

A double own-goal from the Government.
