 Donald Gordon, Crofthead, Milton, South Otago branch

Forty hectares of trees have been established on this Otago sheep and beef farm. Key species are radiata pine, macrocarpa and Douglas fir. The earliest plantings (planted in 1981) are now being logged with pleasing returns thanks in part to low roading costs. Lambing percentage has increased from around 100% to 160% over the years, and Donald accredits this partly to the shelter provided by trees he has planted.
