The article focuses on the land management at Bill and Sue Garland's farm forest property in New Zealand. Originally consisting of a farming operation with 365 hectares devoted for grazing, the forestry option was adopted with the addition of another 140-hectare block for aesthetic, environmental and recreational reasons. PF Olsen was hired to manage the planting and silviculture while the Garlands and their partners concentrated on farming and contracting activities. Planting guidelines considered balancing aesthetics and timber production with site fertility, shelter and appearance as major considerations. Kahikatea, rimu and totara are the main species but kauri and tanekaha are also planted together with exotic species like Cupressus lusitanica and blackwood, Acacia melanoxylon.
