 Benjamin Lee, Reporoa, Taupo branch

Second generation dairy farmer with trees on this exposed plateau farm planted for shelter, shade, soil conservation and timber. A wide range of species are grown in the steeper parts of the farm - cypress lusitanica, macrocarpa, ovensii, oaks and other hardwoods. Home-grown macrocarpa has been used to build a very nice house; and Benjamin has put an E. delegatensis floor into his kitchen.
