  1. There is going to be an inquiry into forestry slash
    Which will result in more regulations
    More compliance
    More costs
    More inflation
    Which will result in substantial extra costs in building a house

    • We’re Aucklanders affected by forestry slash? Or was this a problem in Hawkes Bay?

      Something to note about Hawkes Bay is that almost all of the native bush and trees have been cut down. This is a known cause of erosion.

    • Forestry slash, when kept out of water ways is normally not a problem. It is material that will rot and provide nutrients for the new plantings a couple of years later. It is simply impossible to deal with forestry slash, our forestry sector would be bankrupt overnight.

  2. Perhaps if NZ had not signed up to all this Geo- Engineering of the weather the rain would have been more ‘normal’. An avid weather watcher of the satellite maps can vitually prove that the cyclobne was ‘Haarp’ steered into Hawkes Bay and can pinpoint the moment the cyclone was turned. He called the Hawkes Bay not a disaster zone but a Crime Scene. Along with all the chicken farms burning and other stuff like culling out farms and beef stock, striking into the heart of NZs food bowl will have a serious flow on effect of vegetable and fruit shortages throughout winter. You see this is what you get when you sign your country down the road to the UN WHO and Gates funded WEF protocols and Agendas. Oh! and the death toll well that is just collateral damage to the cause for these criminals because they have depopulation agendas as well.
