The author relates his visit to Te Awa Awa Forest, the Malloy property in New Zealand. Te Awa Awa was acquired in 1973 and comprises about 150 hectares of land. The Malloy family has worked hard for the variety of plantings in the property, as well as its detailed records. A 27-year-old inter-planting of blackwood, Acacia melanoxylon and Eucalyptus saligna was the first stand in the 12 hectare block. Other tree stands in the property are Cupressus lusitanica, Eucalyptus microcorys, and pruned red oak trees. During lunch, a discussion was raised on the need to adapt to climate change and energy issues.
