  1. Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) has been successfully used to describe a wide range of forest metrics at local, regional and national scales. However, little research has used this technology in young Doug...

    Authors: Michael S Watt, Andrew Meredith, Pete Watt and Aaron Gunn
    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:18
  2. This paper examines current herbicide use in New Zealand planted forests. Compliance of key herbicides with existing Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards, the key environmental certification body within ...

    Authors: Carol A Rolando, Loretta G Garrett, Brenda R Baillie and Michael S Watt
    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:17
  3. LiDAR is an established technology that is increasingly being used to characterise spatial variation in important forest metrics such as total stem volume. The cost of forest inventory and LiDAR acquisition ar...

    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:15
  4. Efforts to address erosion and land degradation in steeplands of many countries have largely relied on revegetation. The policy responses to this issue are many and varied as have been their successes. Reveget...

    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:13
  6. Spiral grain angle (SGA) is an important factor affecting the distortion and utilisation of solid timber. Little research has investigated how SGA varies at a fine scale within trees and whether this fine-scal...

    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:12
  7. A number of data sources currently exist that can provide information on forest plantations at a range of scales over an entire rotation cycle. In particular, LiDAR is quickly becoming the technology of choice...

    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:11
  8. Mechanical bending stress due to tree sway in strong winds and water stress during drought are thought to contribute to the formation of resin pockets, but it is unclear if these are linked and whether the ini...

    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:6
  11. When aerial LiDAR data is used to construct Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) under vegetation, DEM quality will invariably suffer due to attenuation of the laser pulses by the land cover. Although the ratio of ...

    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:5
  12. Historically, a series of regional height-age functions have been used to predict height growth of Pinus radiata in New Zealand. However, for some regions there are no available models while other regions have mo...

    Citation: New Zealand Journal of Forestry Science 2013 43:4
  13. Standard protocols for extracting genomic DNA from Pinus radiata D. Don needles, such as CTAB-based methods, can yield large quantities of DNA. However, final DNA purity can be an issue due to carry over of conta...
