“We like the idea of ground-durable eucalypts because we have a very long-term vision for our land. We want to manage and care for our land in perpetuity, and produce timber that is durable and has lots of different end-uses. The environmental credentials of ground-durable eucalypts definitely fit with our vision.
At Trimble we host a number of trials, and we were pleased when we were approached to host one of the NZDFIs. We’ve had some successes and some failures amongst the eucalypts to date, so we are learning as we go."
Andy Pottinger, Chairman, Montfort Trimble Foundation
