This article focuses on the redwood forest established by an overseas investor in King Country, New Zealand. Particular focus is given to his reasons for choosing redwood for his project. Site conditions include high rainfall, naturally fertile soils and a low altitude. In addition, the site has a low exposure to fire risk since it is surrounded by native forest. Keys to a well stocked redwood forest are attention to clone selection, tree stock quality, planting quality and timely releasing.

    In northeastern Pará, extensive fallow-based agriculture systems are still common on smallholdings. Soil fertility is maintained by permitting the recuperation of the capoeira forest fallow. Much of the capoeira, however, has been eliminated, e.g. for permanent pastures but grass-monocultures...
