pdf NZIER - Plantation Forestry Statistics - Contribution of forestry to New Zealand - 21 March 2017

This NZIER report has been commissioned by the NZ Forest Owners Association and NZ Farm Forestry Association, funded by the forest growers commodity levy. These entities are looking to facilitate a better understanding of the role of forestry in the New Zealand economy, environment and society.

Our main focus is on the planting, silviculture, and harvesting that occurs on site. However, we do examine some of the ancillary services such as logging trucks, port service workers, and refer to processing, exporting, the domestic market and its economic contribution.
