Guidelines for Converting Pine Plantations to Native Vegetation

Guidelines for Converting Pine Plantations to Native Vegetation in the Marlborough Sounds

There is growing interest in restoring land currently planted in Pinus radiata (pine) plantations, to native vegetation in the Marlborough Sounds to improve both landscape and biodiversity values. In some instances landowners may plan to harvest the trees commercially and then attempt to re-establish native vegetation; in other cases the pines may be left standing.

These guidelines were prepared to collate existing information and experiences relating to the conversion of pine plantations back to native vegetation in the Marlborough Sounds.
