Trees, soil and you
A new survey has been released by Scion to capture current industry opinion regarding the value of soil data to forest managers, as part of the Growing Confidence in Forestry’s Future (GCFF) Research Programme
Assessing and managing the impact of soil properties on forest productivity and sustainability is a major component of the GCFF research programme. To help make this research as relevant as possible to the forestry industry, we need you to tell us if you are currently collecting soil-based information, and how you use any soil data you might have to assist in the management of your forests. We’re also interested in gauging which areas of soil research are considered to be best understood, and most important, by the people involved in the New Zealand forestry sector.
The survey should take no more than a few minutes to complete, and all responses are anonymous. Lastly, there are no wrong answers – it’s all about your thoughts and opinions on the value of soil to the New Zealand forestry sector.
