Right Tree Right Place
Well known Wairoa farmer Dave Read has planted thousands of poplars and willows on his land for erosion control and to provide alternative food for stock in times of drought. He’s shared his story about why he has planted the right trees in the right places to support his farm operation. To find out more about our Right Tree Right Place scheme or to watch his video visit hbrc.govt.nz, search: #RTRP. We are going to run a trial on up to five farms, where we will partner with the farmer, investors and the forestry sector to offer a tree planting solution on marginal land. We’re looking at ways we can scale up this model around the region, supported by private investment.
