THE PORN KING TAKES UP BEGGING?



Winston's picks get worsor.

Good ole boy Shane "Fuller" Jones made a lot of white noise promising to plant a billion trees a year and every simpleton clapped.
Gee sequestering all that carbon, surely the planet is saved.

Nup it was all shite.
1 The forestry industry already has plantings running at around 500 000 a year as normal replanting and forest extension.
2 no word as to will my ornamentals, fruit trees, conservation planting count.
3 There is a short window of around five months when all goes well between moisture levels reaching a sustainable figure in the autumn and too risky for a spring dry to kill the vulnerable nursery bred plants. A window that can be seriously compromised when bad weather, poor access, labour availability pressures,  without considering availability of stock.

However it made great copy for the industry and the melons wanting more land covered in a sterile toxic plantation that has minimal benefits for fauna, even possums cant use radiata for anything beyond shelter apart from a brief food source at Pollen release. even then willow and many other plants are more attractive.

Now The Minister (he just loves that bit) is begging land owners to hand land over for lease to give his impossible dream some gas.

Pretty mess you have got us into Oliver.
The reality is it is heading for a big fail Oliver, I mean Shane, Winny, head back to the videos where   fanciful is enough for the happy clappers.

Wife and I were up at Paihia last year and, en route, were chatting to a local at a Kawakawa tourist attraction. We had noticed lots of logging trucks heading south (toward Whangarei I guess) and mentioned that and expressed a hope for it to be ongoing. Surprisingly the local was of a view that new plantings were not a certainty (carbon taxes and other govt foolishness apparently making people nervous) and the logging could all be over within 4 years. If there's any truth in that King may be flogging a dead horse.
