ABSTRACT
The author emphasizes the need to encourage forestry and the use of wood. According to the author, forestry aspects were almost ignored at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. He points out that forest's renewable and environmentally friendly recycling system should at least receive equal treatment. He notes that present Kyoto rules are not favourable to either forestry or wood use in spite of its potential in reducing greenhouse gases. He contends that the New Zealand government's propose subsidies for carbon polluters undermines this forestry objective.
