The Montfort Trimble Foundation
The Foundation was established in 2004 and inherited a legacy of public afforestation from Dr Montfort Trimble.
All the tracks are open but beware of Ongaonga on the Matai loop and the Kowhai track.
Tree Trial Data
The foundation has embarked on a comprehensive series of trials to determine the performance of various species of indigenous and exotic tress that might suit the dry East Coast country. The trees are planted in blocks of about fifty and each tree is inividually identified and measured every year.
