Your Thoughts on the Treelord Treaty deal


Around half a billion dollars worth of forestry and assets will be handed over to seven central North Island iwi.

The deal involves $195.7m of crown forest land covering 176,000 hectares plus about $223m in rentals that have accumulated on the land since 1989 and an annual income stream of $13m.

The collective is made up of Ngai Tuhoe, Ngati Tuwharetoa, Ngati Whakaue, Ngati Whare, Ngati Manawa, Raukawa and the Affiliate Te Arawa Iwi and Hapu. Together they represent more than 100,000 people.
