The article profiles Richard Davies-Colley, chairman of the Eucalypt Action Group. In 1964, Richard and his wife Wilma bought a sheep and beef property near Titoki, Whangerei in New Zealand. From then on, they have proved to be amongst the best proponents for using trees on farms. First amongst their plantings were willows and poplars for erosion control. There were no processing facilities available in the area, the Davies-Colleys made processing happen by building sheds, a sawmill, and then drying facilities.
