Public Access Easements

New Zealand

Updated 14 February – all public access easements closed.

OneFortyOne has made the decision to restrict public access into our forests due to the current fire risk levels. This will come into effect from Thursday 15 February.

Fire danger in our region is climbing and NIWA forecast that these high fire danger weather conditions are set to continue. We also monitor ‘fuel dryness’ within the forests and this has now reached a level where restricting public access is required.

The restriction will impact all Public Access Easements in our forests as well as OneFortyOne public permits.  We understand that this may cause some frustration by the public, but we know there is a major risk of a fire occurring in our forest that will be very difficult to control. As we have seen with recent fires in the Lee Valley, it only takes one spark to start a fire, and it takes a large number of our fire brigade, many of whom are volunteers, as well as supporting resources such as aircraft to contain and control a wildfire.

We are working closely with Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) and regularly reviewing NIWA climate forecasts, and will continue to assess the risk and our own operations. We have already rescheduled our own operations, shifting harvesting from the high fire risk blocks in Marlborough to lower risk areas.  We have also pulled out some of our silviculture crews, due to fire risk with chainsaws.

Updated 14 February – all public access easements closed.

Information on other public easement roads through OneFortyOne estate to the Mt Richmond Forest Park is also available on the Department of Conservation website.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
