Wilding pines, or wilding conifers, are the wrong trees in the wrong place. More than a quarter of New Zealand is at risk of being smothered by these invasive pests, which affect ancient native landscapes, unique biodiversity and productive soils.

We have been involved in wilding pine control since 2003. In 2016, we partnered with the National Wilding Conifer Control Programme (NWCCP)(external link) to plan and coordinate control across Waitaha Canterbury.
