- Wilding conifer
Wilding conifers, also known as wilding pines, are invasive tree species in
South Island, they threaten 210,000 hectares of land administered by the Department of Conservation. The wilding conifers are considered to be a threat to biodiversityand to landscape values since they become dominant in areas that are considered to be natural environments.
In it's current Pest Management Strategy the
Canterbury Regional Councilhas the objective of eradicating all self sown wilding conifers in ecologically sensitive areas in its jurisdiction. To do this a range of measures are used including carrying out wilding conifer control operations, encouraging the reporting the presence of wilding conifers, encouraging the removal of seed sources and advocating changes to the district plans of the territorial authorities to prevent or control the planting of inappropriate conifers.
