The article discusses the highlights of the May Middle Districts Field Day held at Ratamarumaru Dougal and Di McIntosh's hill property near Brunswick, north west of Wanganui, New Zealand. Around 400 hectares of the steepest land have been planted mainly in pine since 1974. Also, much of the forestry has been created from alliances with off-farm investors. From 2001 to 2003, 60-hectare blocks of redwoods have been planted. The redwood seedlings originated from Murray's, Appleton's and Ngongotaha nurseries.
