The New Zealand Dryland Forests Initiative (NZDFI) is a commercially-oriented research and development project. It aims to develop genetically improved planting stock and management systems for ground-durable eucalypt species suited to New Zealand’s dryland regions.

Consultation process underway: have your say!

Moving towards our target: 100,000 hectares of durable eucalypts in New Zealand's dryland regions by 2030.

The NZDFI recently released a consultation paper:

Durable eucalypt forests: A multi-regional opportunity for investment in NZ drylands. 

We thank all those who have responded to our questions about how best land can be made available, and  support provided to landowners and others, if the ambitious target of 100,000 hectares of durable eucalypt forest by 2030 is to be achieved. If you would like to have your say, it's not too late, but we need your response as soon as possible. Full details in the document.
