Growth and survival of rimu seedlings in South Westland forests

I.L. James

The rates of growth and survival of natural seedlings and planted rimu seedlings over 15 to 34 years was measured in Ianthe and Saltwater Forests. Survival of natural seedlings after 15 years was 28% and height growth averaged 4 cm per year. Survival of planted seedlings after 17 years was 85% and growth averaged 16 cm/year over 35 years. It is predicted that around 15% of natural seedlings survive 35 years to reach an average height of 1.4 m.
