Conversion of Fire-regenerated Pinus pinaster to Pinus radiata

J.A. Church and G. Stanley-Harris

This paper describes the conversion of a dense stocking of unmerchantable fire-regenerated Pinus pinaster to Pinus radiata. This stand resulted from the 1946 fire which destroyed the majority of Tahorakuri Block owned by N.Z. Forest Products Ltd. It covers the establishment and brief history of the 1946 fire, and details the resultant stocking. It explains the machine crushing and the preparation for burning. The method, description and results of burn are given, and the aerial sowing of the area after the burn is described.
