A basis for the management of new zealand kauri agathis australis forest


A basis for the management of new zealand kauri agathis australis forest



New Zealand Journal of Forestry 28(1): 15-34



ISSN/ISBN: 1174-7986

The area of primeval kauri (A. australis (D. Don) Lindl.) forest was substantially reduced. There now exists a significant 2nd-crop resource. Kauri forests are important ecosystems which are valuable for timber production plus non-wood values and benefits. Sustained yield management is prescribed for timber production zones. This necessitates a knowledge of the ecological characteristics and an appreciation of growth dynamics, stand structures and extent of the resource. The productivity of 2nd-crop stands suggests that there exists the opportunity for increasing the present cut. To preserve its biological features areas of kauri forests have been set aside in scientific reserves. Re-afforestation is primarily aimed at rehabilitating disturbed forest and silvicultural tending is designed to promote the growth of regenerating areas. Harvesting in mature stands was suspended and for environmental, engineering and management reasons helicopter logging is practiced in 2nd-crop stands. The principal function of kauri management is to protect intrinsic forest values. However, it also prescribes activities aimed at producing a small perpetual yield of timber.
