 Audrey Hay, Riverhead, near Helensville, Lower North branch

Audrey Hay's 80 hectare forestry and drystock farm at Riverhead, Helensville. Audrey discusses how plantings were planned on a farm which had very few trees when they bought it 25 years ago. Aesthetics are taken into consideration as well as timber production from radiata pine plus alternative species - blackwoods, poplar, eucalypts, redwoods and cypresses. Livestock shelter, shade are also important objectives.
