Case Study
The article describes the case of the Ngarakau forest in New Zealand. It is a 300 hectare dry stock farm located at Titoki in Northland. It was formerly owned by Richard and Wilma Davies-Colley. According to observers, tunnel gullying or tomos are prevalent in the area including mass earth movement. It discusses how soil erosion in the area was prevented as well as the farm's harvest management system. Experts say that to continue the farm's success, they aim to repeat their cutting strategy for poplars every second summer depending on log prices.
