The article illustrates production forestry and soil erosion on unstable hill country at a Middle District's field day in the Brunswick forests just north of Wanganui, New Zealand. It discusses soils, farming and forestry in the region. Erosion was reduced quite dramatically since the mid-1970s due to afforestation. The Brunswick forestry partnerships' forests is being managed by member Rick Brown. It explains silviculture. It provides information on harvesting and marketing in the region. The yields and returns of the trees being harvested are mentioned.
