Massey Uni Tree trial update

On Wednesday the 9th of October, Georgia came to assess the site. She had been warned that a lamb had gone into the planting and that some trees had been nibbled ! The preference went to the Mahoe and the griselinia as well as the Five fingers. Most trees are recovering but some had to be replaced. The site is reasonably steep and hard so the next few months will be difficult and certainly a good way of demonstrating which specie can adapt to a hill country environment.

We will keep you posted
