Kōrero: Forest succession and regeneration

The Hanger, 1939 (1 o 3)

The Hanger, 1939

The Hanger is an area of regenerating forest at Tūtira Station, Hawke’s Bay, on a slope behind the homestead. The course of plant succession has been studied in the area since 1893. In 1939 the site was covered in mānuka, which had become established alongside bracken.
