Reforestation in the Branch River Catchment

L.J. Slow

Exotic trees are being established in the Branch catchment in central Marlborough in an attempt to provide seed sources for the natural reforestation of eroding mountain land. In the four-year period 1965-1968, group planting, hand sowing, and aerial seeding were carried out within a gross area of nearly 13,600 acres. This paper describes the work and the techniques used, and gives a preliminary account of results achieved so far.
