Whitiwhiti - Emissions Trading Scheme and Carbon Forestry Farms

May 5, 2022, 8:37 p.m.

The Government has proposed to exclude exotic trees including the Radiata Pine tree from the current Emissions Trading Scheme by January 2023, which would see permanent carbon forests trading carbon credits from large, native, indigenous trees. We hear from Ramona Radford from Scion the New Zealand Forestry Research Institute, Penetaui Kleskovic, the Commercial Operations Manager of Te Rūnanga Nui o Te Aupōuri and Te Kapunga Dewes, Ngā Pou a Tāne (Māori Forestry Expert), about the proposed changes and the effect they will have on Māori carbon forestry farming businesses if they go ahead. Join us at 7:30 pm this Thursday for our show Whitiwhiti, with our host Heeni Hoterene.
