ABSTRACT
This article deals with the donation made by the North Canterbury Farm Forestry branch towards the preservation of the unique forest bounding the township in New Zealand. A cheque for $2000 was formally handed over to the Hanmer Forest Heritage Trust as part of a branch field day in the Hanmer area on 26 May. Amongst the 100-year-old trees in the Recreation Reserve and watched by 40 farm foresters, the 2004 conference chairman, Dugald Rutherford, presented the money to Trust chairman Roger Keey. The funds would go towards track maintenance and signage. But the ultimate aim of the Trust was to have all the forest around Hanmer placed in a Regional Forest Park dedicated to public recreation and enjoyment.
