Managing Wilding Conifers in New Zealand: Present and Future

Edited by R.L. Hill, S.M. Zydenbos and C.M. Bezar (2004)
ISBN 0-478-10842-7

There is growing recognition that wilding conifers have the potential to change our landscape and adversely affect land-use value. This volume considers the economic and environmental importance of wilding conifers in New Zealand, whether current control strategies and methods are adequate to manage the spread of wilding trees, and whether biological control is a feasible option given the risk of vectoring diseases such as pine pitch canker.
