The article discusses the benefits of planting eucalypts for vineyards, presented at the workshop for eucalyptus growers in New Zealand. It reports that Richard Hunter, a Marlborough consultant, outlined the potential benefits from ground durable hardwood timbers for viticulture locally. Hunter argued that the eucalypt species in general can add capital value in a variety of ways. The article also presents an outline of the classes of durability and showed the service life of each classes both in ground and above ground, presented by Ian Nicholas of Ensis.
