Radiata Management


Radiata pine is by far the predominant plantation species in New Zealand, comprising some 90% of the total plantation area. It is fundamental that research effort is concentrated on maximising the productivity and profitability of this species, both for growers, and for processors of the trees once harvested.

The Growing Confidence in Forestry’s Future programme is a major multi-million dollar integrated research initiative leading the way in radiata pine research.
