Executive summary

Two trials located in Marlborough have been assessed as a potential source of peeler logs to carry out a peeler study. The trials are:

  • E. bosistoana trial planted in 2003 by Marlborough Regional Forests in the Pukaka Valley
  • E. quadrangulata trial planted in 2004 by the Marlborough District Council at the end of Giffords Rd in the Wairau Valley

Both these trials have been assessed and the data analysed to estimate the potential yield of peelers. This data will be used to a) design a planned peeling trial and b) allow some estimation of productivity and yield.
