Shrublands cover large areas of New Zealand (Trotter et al. 2005) and often represent early- successional stages of regenerating tall forest. They establish spontaneously (with little or no capital investment) and relatively rapidly, and even where composed of exotic species they can act as effective nurse crops promoting tree establishment and succession to forest (Burrows et al. 2015).
