The NZ government (we think) was taking steps to protect the environment of the Otago region. They were systematically killing off these “wilding” pine trees, which are invasive. This land is supposed to be desert scrubland, and these wildings were taking over. So trees were not just dead because of winter, these were purposely being killed.
