Woodside Forest, North Canterbury, is one of the few commercial New Zealand forests with a long history of being managed on ‘near to nature’ forest principles for multiple benefits.

Financial modelling indicates that the sustainable yield and revenue from the beech could increase markedly as the resource reaches its full biological potential. Woodside provides other landowners with an example of what is possible over the long term.
