The article highlights a field trip at Amakiwi forest site, held on the last day of the 2007 conference of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association. The site is in the coastal hill country belt which runs north from the Raglan Harbour to just south of the Manakau Harbour. There are extensive plantings of different cypress varieties and species, some 56 hectares all told, with lusitanica, macrocarpa, Leighton Green and ovensii featuring both in mixtures and as pure stands. A small woodlot of parana pine from southern Brazil was encountered on the group's trip around the site. Lunch on that field day was held at the bach site down in the gully bottom where the cypress action group AGM was also held.
