Kauri dieback link to swamp Kauri industry

Reuben Tilley made this Official Information request to Ministry for Primary Industries

The request was successful.

From: Reuben Tilley

Dear Ministry for Primary Industries,

Good afternoon!

I am hoping you will be able to assist with my question relating to 'Kauri Die-back' disease, as I am trying to find out the probable hypothesis for its occurrence.

Can you please provide documentation in relation to potential causes for the disease researched thus far and any hypothesis that are yet to be further explored.

If no further exploration into the reasons for its occurrence is currently underway can you please provide rationale for this, and the person or persons that authorised the cancellation of further investigation.

Particular interest is in the potential link between the industry of swamp kauri digging in Northland and the location of where the disease was first documented.

For validity of the request I can confirm I am currently residing in New Zealand and a citizen by birth.

Thank you for your time.

Ngā mihi,
Reuben Tilley
