Keeping conifers in their place
In the right place, conifers offer shelter and opportunities for recreation and income, but left to spread they become a pest - infesting farmland, native ecosystems and water catchments.
Communities and land holders across New Zealand are working to control wilding conifer infestations. This work is aided by regional and national funding, and research programmes.
Plan and manage the control of pines and other conifers on your place. Get help with this. Calculate what to plant instead, and where.
