Abstract: Many of the issues related to recent events in places like Tasman Bay in February 2018 and Tolaga Bay in June 2018 were addressed in a ground-breaking forest management plan for the Pokairoa catchment in the Northern Boundary of Kaingaroa Forest in 1993. The authors were both Harvest Planning Managers for the Forestry Corporation of New Zealand Ltd back in the 1990s, and in this paper reminisce about the lessons learned from that exercise 25 years ago and its relevance to recent events.
