Abstract: Important principles in modelling forest industry development in New Zealand are enunciated. Recent sector modelling efforts by the Forest Service and Forestry Council and those contained in the CNIPS report are briefly reviewed, before presenting an outline of the integrated and hierarchical modelling of the sector carried out by the authors. The need to reflect a wide range of interests, objectives, emphases and data aggregations is catered for in this approach, as is the ability to allow ready interaction with a wide range of contributors to, and potential users of the results.
