Durable Eucalypts: A Multi-Regional Opportunity for New Zealand’s Drylands


The Strategy includes an Executive Summary, outlining six key areas of activities:

  • Identifying markets for durable eucalypts
  • Modelling forest productivity and economic feasibility
  • Working regionally to encourage new forests
  • NZDFI's durable eucalypt forestry research plan
  • Educating growers on durable eucalypt forest management
  • Industry partnerships to build support and capability.

All NZDFI research and development work is guided by our strategy, which will be reviewed and updated from from time-to-time.
