Forest and Bird (pre 2003)

Initial planting was carried out on a steep slope using weedmat to suppress weed growth. This area is now well established with the canopy trees showing through. What is more remarkable is that the seed plants such as the karamu have attracted the birds who have distributed seed from the surrounding forest and now young seedlings are regenerating under the protective pioneer “canopy”.2014-fi=orest and bird early
