Season 2, Episode 3
In episode 3 ‘How to Grow a Forest’, host Vincent Heeringa is joined by Forest Ecologist Dr. Adam Forbes and Landscape Architect and Tānes Tree Trustee Paul Quinlan to explore the key principles of near-to-nature and transition forestry.
What is involved in establishing and managing near-to-nature forests – how important is scale, location, eco-sourcing, and a long-term commitment from owners/managers to care for the new forests.
What about the models for sustainable harvesting, and how can we gain public acceptance for harvesting native timbers in New Zealand? All of this and more ahead.
