Planting trees

Planting trees

These men are planting trees at Karioi in the central North Island during the 1930s. State plantations of exotic trees were established from 1897 to help supply the country’s future timber needs. An intensive 10-year planting programme began in 1925 and, in the economic depression of the early 1930s, unemployed men on work schemes helped the Forest Service exceed its planting targets.
