New Zealand Tree Grower;Nov2007, Vol. 28 Issue 4, p16
The author reflects on Northland, the second largest plantation forestry region in New Zealand. He points out that this branch has conducted several field days and yet it is still exciting and rewarding to plan and attend more. According to the author, several organizations participated in the Northland agricultural field days in Dargaville in 1985. He expresses disappoinment over the promotion by some people of the idea that the only good tree to plant is a native.
