Wilding Firewood

Date: 16th June 2022

You’d think all these wildings around the Whakatipu would have marketable timber, right? The answer… it’s complicated.

Wildings are self seeded pines growing outside the maintenance of forestry plots. Accessibility is a factor, along with size of the tree.

You’d think we could do something with wilding firewood? But more often than not, it’s not easy to make this operation commercially viable as trees can be inaccessible and hard to transport out.
