Interpine is working with the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) and the Ministry for the Environment (MFE) to implement a planted forest inventory system for carbon monitoring. The first planted forest measurement season was completed in 2007 by Interpine, and this work is continuing in 2008 on sites located throughout NZ .

Winning the field survey contract reflects a strong relationship that has developed in recent years between Interpine, MFE and MAF. Interpine has provided inventory data transcription, collection, software development and storage capability for the LUCAS project since late 2005.

The contract is a rewarding reflection of the strong emphasis that Interpine has put on electronic data capture and storage and a strategy of diversifying our client base. The contract will require Interpine to devote 10 staff full time to the project through to October 2008, with staff based in Southland, Nelson, Whangarei, Hawkes Bay and Rotorua.
