This article provides information on new issues relating to the Indigenous Forest Section of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association (NZFFA), as of November 2005. It was formed in response to the passing of the Forest Amendment Act 1993 and the effect this had on owners of private native forest. The objective of the organization was to promote indigenous forestry in the widest possible sense and to encourage management practices which would preserve the unique characteristics of native forests for future generations. At present, the Indigenous Forest Section has about 190 members. Its activities include advising the NZFFA executive on relevant policy and political matters.
