MPI is leading a process to deliver a National Environmental Standard for Plantation Forestry (NES-PF). The Erosion Susceptibility Classification (ESC) is a critical input into the proposed NES-PF as it underpins the level of resource consent control for different plantation forestry activities. Public submissions on the proposed NES-PF raised concerns about the suitability of the ESC and as a result, MPI asked Landcare Research to provide a more detailed subdivision of the High ESC class based on dominant erosion process, rock type and topography.
