This article focuses on problems facing the South Auckland branch of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association regarding membership. The author, as Branch President, tried to increase membership by fair means and foul, one being to ask people bring their name tag and a friend to the field days. The association should be getting new members, as more and more urban dwellers succumb to the pull of smallholdings, and the ever-increasing availability of such farmlets. Pine timber prices and lack of government support are one of the reasons why the association are losing members.
