Council's report on the utilisation of South Island beech forests

Policy Submission
New Zealand Ecological Society Council  

The N.Z. Ecological Society considers that the proposals for utilizing the South Island beech forests are not ecologically acceptable in their present form, and urges the Government to hold them in abeyance until sufficient information is published on which to base a properly informed decision. Further, the Society finds serious deficiencies in the Environmental Impact Report to the Officials Committee.
