NZIF Newsletter 18 June 2018 (President's Column)

The Tolaga Bay storm has dominated the forestry-related media interest over the last couple of weeks. There have been dramatic shots of flooding, erosion and yes, those piles and rafts of logs and logging slash, in places where they should not be. Of course, in the East Cape, a lot of the logs and slash are likely come from trees that were planted in the first place to help control erosion. The role of trees in stabilising erosion-prone land is reasonably well understood by the profession. Trees will slow down erosion, but will not stop it. If those trees are managed for timber, there will be a window of vulnerability around time of harvest when the risk of erosion is increased. Whether that risk translates through to accelerated erosion and downstream damage depends on another uncertain process, the weather.
