The article reports on the claim of New Zealand scientists that sustainability of forestry production can be ensured with the application of productivity indicators that have been identified by Scion, the Crown Research Institute. Indicators on soil and environment that tell of the productive capacity of all available land for forestry have been developed. Forest growers can now monitor and maintain the productivity of their land over many years by the use of the said indicators, according to soil scientist Peter Clinton.
