Growing the forest story: Forest Call

Forestry has come out of the shadows into the spotlight. Our industry is undoubtedly New Zealand’s main weapon against climate change by locking up vast amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. We export more than $6 billion worth of forest products a year. And we need to get better at preventing debris going down rivers in floods.

Telling our story on television is overdue.

So, broadcaster Don Carson takes us through what forestry is all about.
