This article focuses on the developments in indigenous forestry in New Zealand as of November 2005. Since the closure of the transitional milling provisions in 1996 there has been a steady recruitment of forest under approved sustainable forest management plans and permits. The volume approved for harvest under plans and permits has steadily increased. While the approved volumes by species reflect the composition of the forests coming under management, with the total approved volume dominated by beech. The production of indigenous timber has steadily declined the increase in approved harvest volume for plans and permits. An amendment to the Forests Act in May 2004 saw a number of technical changes that led difficulties for forest owners.
