Natural Regeneration of the Podocarps in the..Whirinaki River Valley

R. J. Cameron



Early in the nineteenth century Maori tribes cleared and cultivated several small areas in dense podocarp forest in the Whirinaki River valley. These were abandoned about 1840 and today carry a serai vegetation of dense pole podocarps. Studies made in these and in younger areas of natural podocarp regeneration indicate the results that could be expected from any attempt to regenerate the forest using methods of group or strip felling. At present such systems are not likely to be applied in the Whirinaki forests.
