Forest recreation

Plantation forests provide many recreation values for their owners and approved groups. Marlborough has over 70,000 hectares of plantation forests, much of which is in idyllic locations in the sounds and upper valleys making them great for tramping, hunting, horse riding and mountain biking.

It is hard to put a value on recreation, but one study of a forest near Rotorua valued recreation as several times the wood value. Click here for more detail.
