Don Carson is the PR guru for the Forest Owners Association. He had a chat to The Country's Jamie Mackay today about how his industry is experiencing a bit of a Renaissance recently.
Environmental issues such as greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) have been in the news lately; with one plan suggesting New Zealand reduce pastoral livestock by up to 35 per cent to remedy the problem.
