ABSTRACT
This article offers information on Atiu Creek, the acquired farm park run by the Auckland Regional Council in New Zealand. The 847 hectare property was given to the people of New Zealand in 2006. There are around 80 hectares of woodlots across the park with several radiata pine that ranges in age from three to 20 years. Other trees in the property are Cupressus lusitanica, Acacia melanoxylon, and Cryptomeria japonica. The nature of the plantings at Atiu Creek has changed since the 1990s. For instance, the entrance drive is now widely flanked by Norfolk pines, as well as a wide range of native plantings such as puriri, pohutakawa, and titoki.
