Executive summary

The SWP programme aims to transform processing options for species other than radiata pine including eucalypts, Douglas-fir and cypresses, develop improved breeding stock to overcome current wood quality and forest health issues, and develop a new naturally durable eucalypt resource. The programme has an overarching aim of encouraging regional investment in specialty species with the focus initially on four target regions – the Eastern North Island, Central North Island, Marlborough/Nelson and Otago/Southland.
