Afforestation Grant Scheme
The Afforestation Grant Scheme (AGS) is a new initiative first flagged in the Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change: Options for a Plan of Action discussion document released in December 2006.
The AGS offers an alternative to the proposed New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) as a way to encourage greater levels of greenhouse gas absorption by increasing the area of Kyoto-compliant new forest in New Zealand.
For further information on the AGS, or to have a Regional Council Land Management Officer inspect your land proposed for planting please contact:
