Glendore Forestry Partnership

Whitecliffs, Canterbury, New Zealand

This site provides photos of the forest owned by Glendore Forestry Partnership as is intended as a means for those partners unable to visit the forest to be able to view their investment.

The forest is approx. 58ha of Pinus Radiata planted in 1995 and some small areas of E.Nitens planted over several years. Pruning began in the summer of 1999/200 and continued in 200/2001.  The second prunehas begun in the summer of 2001/2002. Most of the P.Radiata will be pruned to produce high value clearwood and the E.Nitens pruned for a small local veneer market.

This shot was taken as part of the plot measurements after the third prune, the trees are pruned to over 6m.  Thinned trees in the foreground, a further thin will be needed a year or so on from this photo.
