7:08 David Hall - Planting for Our Future
New Zealand lost close to 140,000 hectares of forest between 2001 and 2014 according to World Forest Watch. The bulk of that loss was made up of forestry plantations being harvested and not replanted - but by no means all. An estimated 10,0000 hectares of native and regenerating forest was lost between 1996 and 2014. David Hall is the author of Our Forest Future: Towards a National Forestry Future for New Zealand. The paper, commissioned by Pure Advantage, advocates planting 1.3 million hectares in forest to off-set our agricultural emissions.
