Proposed Wilding Pine Clearance - Twizel

We are keen to understand the views of the community relating to proposed thinning/removal of non-native tree species in the Twizel area.

Please provide by feedback by 5pm on 2 August 2020.

Environment Canterbury (ECan) are considering the removal of some Conifers in the area as part of the National Wilding Conifer Management Programme.

“Wilding pines pose a major threat to eastern South Island conservation values, water yield and farming, and Canterbury is one of the worst affected regions,” ECan regional leader bio-security Graham Sullivan said. “The species are a mix including Corsican, Ponderosa, Larch, Scots pine and Douglas fir.”
