Bioenergy trials in wilding forests

Jul 12, 2020

Ahikā has been assisting Pukaki Forestry to create a biomass business model using a 1,200 ha (hectares) of wilding forest in the MacKenzie area.

The model being proposed by Ahikā is to harvest wilding trees and generate income via log sales while creating a secondary biomass product from the residues. The model being proposed will assist with offsetting the ongoing costs associated with wilding control.
