The article announces the decision of Jeff Tombleson and Mark Dean to leave the Plantation Management Cooperative in New Zealand. Through their commitment to forestry science, both have helped shaped the forest growing industry. Tombleson, along with genetics researcher Mike Carson, started the research cooperative in 1986 to develop knowledge regarding propagation and management of improved radiata breeds. Meanwhile, Dean has been a researcher for 22 years with Forest Research. He was involved in investigating the effects of oversowing sites with legumes.
