For the majority of the 2017/18 year both the King Country and Waikato regions experienced a mixture of dry and humid weather conditions. The warm north/north easterly winds also brought heavy downpours of rain to much of the region. The high number of sunshine hours combined with the consistent rainfall has provided ideal growing conditions for your forests.
Permanent record plots (PRP) continue to show consistent growth rates throughout the Greenplan Forest Estate. We collect the stem diameter and height data from the same crop trees annually to ensure ongoing consistency. Occasionally due to wind damage we are required to re-select new trees. Re-selected trees are located within the PRP radius boundary, appropriately marked and stem measurements collected.
