Wilding Tree Risk Calculator

Before planting, forests must be assessed for the risk of conifer species spreading to land outside the plantation. Use the Wilding Tree Risk Calculator to assess the risk for your site.


About the Wilding Tree Risk Calculator

The Wilding Tree Risk Calculator must be used by foresters to assess the risk of wilding conifers spreading when:

  • planning new forests
  • replanting with a conifer not previously planted.

If your score is less than 12, planting or replanting is permitted. If it is 12 or higher, you need resource consent.  

The calculator is available in Appendix 1 of the Wilding Tree Risk Calculator guidelines.
