How tōtara can drive value and growth in Northland

The Tōtara Industry Pilot in Northland tested how sustainable regeneration and cultivation of tōtara can deliver commercial opportunities for local industries, businesses and communities.

Phase one of the initiative was completed in 2020 and showed there is enough tōtara on private and Māori-owned land in Northland to develop a strong productive economy, worth an estimated $30 million a year to the local and national economies.
