The article focuses on the field day conducted at Miller's family trust forest block near Balclutha, New Zealand. Tim Smith, harvesting and marketing manager for PF Olsen & Co. summarized the services offered by the company which has only recently had a presence in the area after its acquisition of Wrightson Forestry. The merits of the Forest Stewardship Council group certification scheme was emphasised. According to Environmental Manager Kit Richards, PF Olsen could offer this service to small growers at an affordable cost. For a grower with a mixed age forest of over 50 hectares, the start up and initial audit costs would be about $2,000, with annual costs of $1.8 a hectare. The forest is situated on the northern slopes of the Kaihiku hills and visible from many parts of Otago.
