About the QEII National Trust

February 2006
New Zealand Tree Grower;Feb2006, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p27
The article presents information on New Zealand's QEII National Trust which enables landowners to protect in perpetuity special features on their land through its open space covenants. A covenant is voluntary, but once in place binds the current and all subsequent landowners. Special features protected by the covenant include landscapes, forests, or bush remnants, wetlands, tussock grasslands, cultural sites, streams, coastlines, geological features, archaeological sites and wildlife habitats. As of October 1, 2005, open space covenants protected more than 73,000 hectares and a further 20,000 hectares had been approved for registration. 25 QEII regional representatives are scattered throughout the country who advise landowners interested in covenanting.
