Afforestation Grant Scheme
This government scheme aims to encourage and support the planting of small to medium-sized (for example, 5-300ha) forests with indigenous or exotic species. Priority for funding through the scheme is for planting trees on erosion-prone pastoral land.
Applicants to the scheme require a farm plan, which the council can provide free of charge. For more information on the planning process download the Farm Water Quality Improvement Plan brochure from our resource library.
More information about the Afforestation Grant Scheme can be found on the Ministry for Primary Industries website.
Northland Forestry Guidelines
The Northland Forestry Guidelines are a set of guidelines developed between industry leaders and the Northland Regional Council. They are a guide to good practice when undertaking a variety of activities associated with the harvest of plantation forestry and aim to minimise the environmental effects of forestry operations.
The guidelines are a living document which will improve over time taking into account the needs of industry and environmental protection and are currently open for comment from the industry.
Any comments to the guidelines can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Due to the size of the document the Northland Forestry Guidelines has been split into separate files.
