Controlling wilding pines

Wilding pines are any pine trees that grow in unwanted areas, usually from seed dispersal. The most common are Pinus radiata, Pinus contorta and Douglas fir. They can be controlled by spraying, felling, ring barking, or by pulling or digging out the young tree, as shown by Neville Peat, a Department of Conservation officer in the Wakatipu area.
