A range of alternative species are grown on this 57-hectare exposed Taranaki dairy farm, including redwoods, cryptomeria japonica, and poplars. Trees are planted for shelter and shade, biodiversity and aesthetics. Native species are incorporated into shelter plantings. Bird life is very important, so pests are actively controlled.
