Forestry

Forests are a natural heritage, a vital part of our eco-system, important for land stabilisation, carbon sequester, and a valuable commercial resource.

Social Credit will:

 

• Conserve forests both as a natural heritage and a commercial resource

 

• Stop any further sales of forests to overseas interests


• Put in place a requirement for immediate replanting nearby where native timber is logged

 

• Develop co-operative forestry ventures, through long term, low interest loans


• Promote crop diversification, new products and new wood-based derivatives, leading to the cessation of wood imports


• Promote the use of timber and wood wastes for energy production


• Scrap the Emissions Trading Scheme

 

• Make the sale of cutting rights subject to end-processing in New Zealand for home use and export

 

• Manage forests for multi-use: timber production, farm forests, recreation and hunting, and cash crops

 

• Upgrade and improve New Zealand's transport systems for more efficient transportation of logs and timber products
