Many of NZIF’s members have a direct involvement in the management of forest and rural lands of which fire management activities relating to fire restriction, prevention, protection and control is very much an integral part of this role. Uncontrolled landscape wildfires are a known risk to our members and stakeholders and as a consequence the losses from wildfires do impact on the financial returns from forestry investment. Some NZIF members also have an interest in the management of fire in the hill and high country public lands covering a third of New Zealand under the management of Department of Conservation.

Future of Wood Processing in New Zealand is the theme of this issue. Three
papers analyse the market prospects for a Kraft pulp mill; the Return on
Capital Employed (ROCE) of potential industries; and the results of the latest
National Exotic Forest Description (NEFD) wood supply forecasts. The last word
is provided by Brian Stanley, Chairman of the Wood Council of New Zealand. Two
professional papers on forest road-stream crossings and forest establishment
quality assurance round out the issue.
