The article focuses on forestry activity in Marlborough, New Zealand. In north Marlborough, the New Zealand government has offered financial incentives to tree planters and has begun planting additional State Forest areas in erosion prone parts of the northern region. Around 40,000 hectares of land in north Marlborough are planted mainly with radiata pine. Despite the dry climate, plantation forestry was considered for south Marlborough. Around 20,000 hectares have been planted but limited harvesting is practiced because no planting activity has been done in the area until the 1980s.
