The History Of Pine Trees On The Aupōuri Peninsula

Aug. 8, 2022, 1:33 p.m.

Peter Lucas Jones, Chairperson of Te Runanga Nui o Te Aupōuri, attended the Iwi Chairs Leaders Hui in Ruatoria last week. He says many kaupapa such as Climate Change and Forestry were discussed.

Peter Lucas says the Aupōuri Peninsula has grown plenty of pine in recent years, it serves a purpose for the land where the marram grass and lupin grew to help strengthen the land near the ninety mile beach and sand dunes.

Proposed changes by the Green Party and Goverment to the Emissions Trading Scheme will affect which trees qualify for Carbon Credits under the scheme, removing the Pinus Radiata will mean a substantial financial loss for the iwi of Te Aupōuri and many others around NZ.
