This article focuses on plantation woodlots and forests in Westland in New Zealand. The terms woodlots and forests conjure many different perceptions based on the scale of plantation areas. There are 38.4 hectares of flat and moderately steep terrain comprising 21 separate blocks, with 10 different species established during a 54 year period. when walking through the site, some of the dangers posed to the public by windblown, over-mature plantation trees. Many had toppled while others were on a severe lean ad threatened the safe use of the site. There were additional precautions placed on how trees could be felled and extracted and avoid not damaging the history of the site.
