ABSTRACT
The author discusses her experiences of setting up a farm forest in Normandale. She and her husband acquired the property in 1967. The real work started when they had to prune the pines. They took advice from the Wellington Branch of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association and took courses on forest management from the Technical Correspondence Institute. They built their house after cutting and planting other trees. Soon children came and now they hire contractors for major jobs.
