Obituary Champion of alternative species and trees on farms Ian David Nicholas 1953 to 2013
In our forestry community one of our forest giants has fallen. He wasn’t the tallest tree in the forest, but his branches stretched far and wide, and in common with all forests, when one of the forest giants falls there is a large space left behind… This one is larger than most. Angus Gordon (Farm Forester, Taihape) I first met Ian when we both began worked at the Forest Research Institute in Rotorua in the mid-1970s. Besides being work colleagues, over the next three-anda- half decades we raised families together, were both actively involved in leadership roles in Toastmasters International, and shared a strong interest in fishing. His enthusiasm for fishing was almost as strong as his passion for farm forestry. My last memories of Ian are dragging him away from one of the many farm forestry projects he was working on for one more fishing trip. (no keywords)
