Community feedback open on draft Forest Management Public Summary

05 Apr 22


OneFortyOne is seeking community feedback on its draft Forest Management Public Summary (Public Summary). This Public Summary supersedes the OneFortyOne Plantations Forest Management Plan 2016-2021.

Planning and Compliance Manager Janeth Mackenzie said that the Public Summary provides a management framework and sets out how OneFortyOne will put its Forest Management Policy commitments into practice in the Green Triangle.

“The primary objective in managing our forest estate is to practice sustainable forestry”, Janeth said.

“Our Public Summary describes how we sustain the health and production of the forest, and also outlines how we will protect biodiversity, sustainably manage the landscape and share economic, social and cultural benefits within the communities where we operate”.

Janeth said public consultation is critical to the review process.

“The intent of this document is to share with the community our plan for managing the forest over the next five years. We publicly release the draft Public Summary to actively seek input into the development of that plan”.

“We truly value feedback, as it helps us to improve how we manage our forests. Our business is intrinsically linked to the Green Triangle region and we look forward to hearing from anyone with an interest in our forest estate and management activities.”

The draft Public Summary can be accessed on the OneFortyOne website from 5 April 2022 until 16 May 2022.

Feedback can be provided via the online feedback form.

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.
