Nursery Propogation of Kauri at Waipoua Forest
Techniques in the handling of kauri, as developed or in course of development at the Waipoua Forest Nursery, are described under the following heads—seed collection and seed trees, seed bed preparation and seed sowing, cultivation and weeding, nursery injuries and their control, lining out, preparation of trees for planting, nursery trials and experiments. It is considered that successful techniques have been evolved, though there is still room for improvement, particularly in relation to, the hardening off of stock prior to planting. A trial of the Dunemann system has shown particular promise.
