The Levy at Work

The biggest slice of the Levy income goes on research because it’s so important for the future of New Zealand’s forestry. Research includes such things as studying pests and diseases which already harming our forests, or which are not yet in New Zealand, but would do damage if they did arrive.

It also includes working out better ways to fight forest fires, or making tree seedlings more sturdy.

The second biggest portion of the levy spend is on biosecurity to ensure forests stay healthy.
