What this project is all about

Regenerating tōtara presents a unique opportunity for Northland.

The vision of this initiative is a regional industry based on the sustainable management of the regenerating farm-tōtara resource.

We want to change the way landowners view this resource as something that has environmental and commercial value, something that needs to be nurtured, tended and encouraged, rather than crushed and converted to pasture.

We want to see tōtara valued again,  and used to create a successful wood-products industry.

​A successful tōtara industry will see the sustainable management of existing regenerating forest and scrubland and encourage the planting of new areas, increasing the area of native forest on private land.
