Lammermoor Station Resource Consent Pine Forest Application
Submissions close 4pm Thursday 1st December
Lammermoor Station owners have applied to plant 66 hectares of Pine Trees on Outstanding Natural Landscape designated land in the Lammermoor Range (see map below) under the Emissions Trading Scheme.
If consent is granted by the Central Otago District Council this will set a dangerous precedent for other landowners to cash in on the rapidly rising price of carbon at the expense of all others who value our unique local landscape and the flora and fauna that depend on it. (See a full list of the impacts on the pre-filled submission form linked below).
We are doing what we can but we need voices from the public to aid us in this fight for the environment.

If you are new to this issue and are wondering what it wrong with planting pine trees like please The Wilding Pine Issue page of our website.
The applicant has described methods of how they will attempt to contain the wilding spread of their plantation such as a perimeter of a "sterile" species, which is incorrect information (see this article).
With the collective knowledge and experience of our group we know that their measure proposed will not contain the spread.
