Preventing the spread

Despite the huge areas of land threatened by wilding conifers, these are one of New Zealand’s easiest weed problems to deal with.

Wilding conifer seedlings are easily spotted and seeds seldom survive in the soil beyond five years. We are now making good progress with our national efforts to contain and control these weeds - in 2016/17 we brought 1.2 million hectares of affected lands under control.

Many committed individuals and groups have already taken big steps to control New Zealand’s wildings, and they could use your help.

For resources and help to control wilding conifers on your property see our Land holders page.
