Unfortunately New Zealand is back at Alert Level 2 until at least midnight on Friday 14 August, and the Auckland Supercity is at Alert Level 3. The Covid-19 forestry protocols are still on the Safetree website and are still current. See the protocols

Other key actions for Level 2 stay the same:

Preparing for other alert levels
On an operational level, discussions are underway with the Ministry of Primary Industries regarding the ability of forestry to continue to work if any regions become Alert Level 4. The forestry sector responded positively and collaborated in developing and implementing appropriate protocols which are still current. Given this sound approach, and the remote nature of the majority of operations, it is appropriate for the forestry industry to advocate to continue to operate alongside others in the primary sector, and this is being done.
