ABSTRACT
The article features the forestry in Mount Taranaki, New Zealand. The forestry is exposed to south and westerly winds at an altitude of 260 meters and the soil is Egmont loam and free draining. There is a shelterbelt of seven-year-old pines on the roadside of the block. Acacia dealbata was planted as a nurse crop in the forestry block in 1992. The trees were approximately 25 metres with a diameter at breast height between 30 and 40 centimeters in year 16. Other trees planted in the forestry block were 1.25 hectares of macrocarpa in 1992 and 1.25 hectares of GF25 pines and 1.25 hectares of white ash in 1993.
