Mollie’srecycling legacy

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Mollie Anderson was apioneer in

recycling. Her leadership,

contribution, passionand

dedicationtowaste minimisation

in Amberley and beyond was

inspirational.

Mrs Anderson’s enthusiasmfor

the recycling andwaste industry

overthreedecades was well

known throughout New Zealand,

withmany localgovernment

politicians familiar withher

name and no­nonsenseattitude.

Mrs Anderson, who died

recently at her home in

Broomfield, aged 91, saw waste

minimisation as an obligationto

preserve our fragile

environment, whileatthe same

time sustaining alifestyleto

which we haveall become

accustomed.

She started arecycling

operation in Amberley with a

groupoflocals in theearly 1980s,

when concernsabout the future

of landfills began to gain traction.

She and her helpersaccepted,

sorted and disposedofrecycling

materials on Saturday mornings,

initially fromthe old fire station,

but lateratthe council depot in

Carters Road and the adjoining

Frewsblock, over which anew

street now runs,named in her

honour.

Mrs Andersonwas blunt with

her messages to anyone who did

not fall into linewith her

thinking: ‘‘Ifwetrulyaspiretobe

greenand clean, there is agreat

deal of work to be done.’’

She was afounder of the

Amberleyand District Residents’

Association, whichran Hurunui

Recycling.

As an active volunteer, Mrs

Anderson recognised the need to

instil goodrecycling practices in

people from averyyoung age,

and wrotefour children’s books

Mollie Anderson ... The recycling stalwart has died at the age of 91.

on waste minimisation.

She hosted school toursat

Hurunui Recycling and, withher

husband, Andrew, worked

tirelessly on waste minimisation

tools to help achieve it, as well as

findingmarkets for recyclables.

The recyclingshop became a

much­loved destinationfor many

in the district who tookhome

many treasures. As they left,

more would be dropped off.

Afriend and co­worker for

many years, EsmayEllis,said

Mrs Anderson was atenacious,

amazing ladywho,aspartofa

group,made recycling happenin

the region.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor,

Iwould like to support Waimakariri

Mayor Dan Gordon's column (North

Canterbury News,May 7) in regard to parkand­ride

and also the Environment

Canterbury rates rise.

Dan is completely correct in saying that

park­and­rideshould be put off for at least

12 months.

Ithink it should not even go ahead at all,

as it would be awhite elephant and will

never work.What are the councillors

thinking?

As for ECan, what an absolute disgrace in

this uncertain time that they are asking for

a9.8 percent increase in rates. How rude in

asking for arates rise of this scale.

Yours,

Darren Roberts,

Dismay over riverside dumping

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Rubbish dumped off

stopbanks along the Ashley

River behind the Rangiora

Racecourse is ‘‘outrageous

stupidity’’, alocal resident

says.

One huge dump last week

of whiteware and household

plastic was ‘‘criminal’’ and

the laststraw for the resident

who runs alongthe

stopbanks every day.

It is apopular area for

recreation and she is joined

by other runners,aswell as

peoplewalkingand biking.

The woman, who asked not

to be named, tookher

concerns aboutthe latest

dump of rubbish directlytoa

company whom she traced

from siftingthrough the pile.

She also rang the

Waimakariri District

The Level2Covid­19 protocols meant

However, it was all part of rebuilding

‘‘Tosee something like that

There was absolutelyno

one of its employees, to

particularlywhen the

Rangiora Transfer Station

‘‘Most of it was recyclable,

and that can be dropped off

for nothing.’’

She says the amountof

The area is becoming

says. The area had been

‘‘Itnow looks more

She hopes this might

This wouldthen allowmore peopleto

Couriers work through lockdown

By SHELLEY TOPP

Business has increased 150

percent for North

Canterbury courier service

iDeliver during the

lockdown restrictions.

‘‘It has been areal

challenge at times that is for

sure but we are really

enjoying it,’’ says managing

director Stephen Carr, who

owns the business with Paul

Love.

Running it under

lockdown restrictions has

proved arollercoaster ride

for the Waipara pair.

Courier services were

recognised as an essential

service and could operate

under strict guidelines.

However, they were

initially unsure how their

business would go under

lockdown.

They temporarily lost the

custom of regular customers

who were unable to trade —a

setback which came only

three weeks after the

partners bought Rangiora

Couriers to add to their

business.

However, once ‘‘click and

collect’’ shopping gained

momentum under level 3,

they recognised an

opportunity picking up the

‘‘overflow’’ of deliveries from

other courier businesses.

They also successfully

reached out to other

businesses which they hoped

needed help with deliveries.

Paul and Stephen set up

iDeliver in December 2013

with one van driven by Paul.

It now employs 12 people and

owns 11 vans, working in

North Canterbury,

Christchurch and Ashburton.

Water focus must remain

Mr Blackwell issued

the warning while

While the world has

which the council

endorsed in December

2018. It is now subject to

Environment

He said many of the

recommendations had a

timeframe of five to 10

years, so any delay

would ‘‘push those

He acknowledged the

Mr Blackwell stepped

up as Zone Committee

chairman last year,

taking over from Dave

Ashby who led the

committee through the

ZIPA process.

The committee’s main

focus over the last year

has been working on the

‘‘non­statutory requirements’’

of the ZIPA.

‘‘We’ve been working

with community groups

on planting projects and

trying to educate and

encourage more people

Acontroversial

the committee is putting

the health and wellbeing

of water first in

human needs second

and other uses third,

which Mr Blackwell says

is apolicy direction at

‘‘It’s an indication of a

though it’s not in law

yet,’’ Mr Blackwell said.

‘‘The primary focus of

this process going

forward will be on the

health of waterways,

because if that is

have confidence in what has been

achieved and whatthe Government is

doing. Instead we can dismiss.’’

The Government’s conclusion that it can

dismiss questioning of its decision­making

over Covid­19 is deeplytroubling. For a

Governmentthat claims to be open and

transparent, it is incredibletothinkits

ministers won’tfrontthe public on what

has been the biggestpublic health

response this country has experienced.

Rather than dismissing and concealing,

the Government should be explainingand

Planning for the future

We should consider what it means to

be aregion supporting the primary

industry, as we work towards opening

up our district and region, including

the possibility of an Australian

bubble.

An important lesson learned

through this forced lockdown is that

our district is able to continue to

function, with 68 percent of its

workforce deemed essential services.

It has been well documented that

the most severely hit is our valuable

hospitality and retail business.

We have been hit hard by drought,

earthquake and Covid­19.

For our district to prosper, we need

to be considered in what and where

we spend —‘‘keeping it local is key to

our recovery”.

For several months now,

governments around the world have

advised or instructed their citizens to

stay at home and keep healthy.

The importance of our health has

never been in such sharp focus and,

consequently, it is not surprising that

consumers are thinking more about

the foods they eat and the impact that

these will have on their long­term

health and wellness.

It is apparent that consumers are

searching out diet and lifestyle

choices that will boost immunity and

therefore protect the wellness of their

families.

The traditional government

response to an economic crisis is to

build roads to get people back into

work and money into the economy.

There is an opportunity to create

the right space to lift the country’s

food resilience, by investing in water

storage, improving rural connectivity,

and continuing to ensure health and

education opportunities are available

to all.

This is atime when we all need to

play our part to ensure that our supply

chain is secure.

There has never been amore

important time to value everyone’s

contribution to our district.

These practices are embodied in

Maori culture “manaakitanga” (caring

and supporting others) and

“kaitiakitanga” (caretaking of the

environment).

These generate responsibilities for

remembering what has come before

us, realising wellbeing today and

creating sustainable conditions for

future generations.

Keep safe.

Glorious local celebrations as peace came to the world

We are ‘‘at war’’ withavirus,but

it needs to be remembered that

the lossoflife and lost/damaged

soulsmakes this war seem like an

inconvenience to those of us left

who remember that scary time

that ended 75 years ago.

Locally,here in Waipara a

hastycelebrationwas set up all

thoseyears ago at the Waipara

Hall,which was thenalittle

wooden building with astageand

an attachedrifle rangetunnel.

Dave McGuckin and Iwere

aged 7. We weretaken along by

our parents. There werealso

who witnessed an effigyofAdolf

wouldnever come home.

Then the partystarted in the

old hall —Charlie Phillips (the

stationmaster) was master of

ceremonies, and auctioneer for

all the local baking and produce

sold to raise money for the Red

Crossand the “boys and girls”

overseas.

This was interspersed with a

glorious sing­along of those wellknownsongs

from both world

wars —all sung with gusto.Ican

stillsee Jack Rule(a‘‘wheel

tapper’’ withthe Railways) on

stageplaying his harmonica.

Everyyear therehad been

many such community

gatherings, but this one was

extra­special. The world was at

peaceatlast.

However, rural NewZealand

continued as it had during the

war —therewas starvingwartorn

Britain and muchofEurope

to feed. King, countryand the

Commonwealth were atightknit

and supportive communityand

therewas agreat dealofintercountry

banter.

Our farm(typical of the time)

had plenty of staff.MrRichards

livedinthe hut that was the

original WekaPlains residence

in 1915.Itstill stands. Then there

was the ‘‘landgirl’’, Val Williams,

who spent her lastyears in

Amberley. Her ‘‘room’’ was a

little former Railways hut.A

married couple occupied the

cottage.

Visitorstothe farm included

the US Marines —Jack,Manuel

and others on R&R before

deploymentinthe Pacific.

Therewere also two university

holiday workers who were

helping my dad build an

irrigationscheme.

Then of course, there were the

shearing/crutchinggangs of up to

seven. There was the Manawatu

family from the Peninsula and

then the Pomarefamilyfrom

Tuahiwi —the dad, sonsand

daughters. There were some

greatsing­alongs. Theyeven took

me eeling afterdinner.

Ican assure readersthere was

never adull momentgrowing up

on the “Weka Plains”. Everyone

ate at the homestead dinner table

—myMum, chief caterer, was a

former citygirl.Itwas quite a

culture change for her.

My Dad’s wartime diaries are

pretty empty.Hewas too damn

tired!

Iwon’t be herefor the

centennial of VE Day but Isure

wish we had been able to

organise a75th in the ‘‘old­time

way’’. We could have sung Land

of Hope and Glory, Pokarekare

Ana, Maori Battalion,and the

nationalanthems one moretime.

ADRIEL HOUSE AND REST HOME

8 North Canterbury News, May 14, 2020

Adriel’srecipe for a

fruitful lockdown

There is abounty of fresh jam and

baking in the larder at Adriel House

and Rest Home.

Residents at the Amberley­based

home, which cares for those who have

suffered memory loss, have been busy

picking fruit, making jam, fruit

crumbles, and baking during Covid­19

alert levels 3and 4.

Owner Mischeal McCormick says

the harvest has kept everyone busy,

and this has led to alot of discussion

about recipes and baking, which in

turn has led to aphoto shoot, with a

recipe book now on the menu.

‘‘The recipes will definitely be tried

and true. The harvest, baking and

recipe book provided alot to talk

about with relatives when they rang to

talk to their loved ones over recent

weeks,’’ Mischeal says.

Staff and residents had all

responded to the constraints of the

Covid­19 alert levels well. The home’s

amazing diversional therapy staff

developed aprogramme that ensures

there is always plenty to do every day.

Acircuit has been developed

around the rest home to ensure

residents get plenty of exercise. It has

developed into a‘‘bit of aracetrack’’,

with residents keen to walk around it,

finding things to do and talk about

along the way.

‘‘The residents have been really

active, which is great, and we have

been really lucky everyone has got on

board with the lockdown and

supported each other.’’

Clinical nurse manager Elaine

Recipe for success ... Wynne Mathieson

the oven.

manager Elaine Mulholland. PHOTOS: SUPPLIED

Mulholland, who joined the staff a

couple of months ago to look after the

day­to­day running of the home, has

fitted into life at Adriel well, and staff

and residents are loving having her on

the floor, Mischeal says.

Zoom meetings are up and running

and proved invaluable on Mother’s

Day, with residents and family being

able to see each other and have achat

on the special day.

‘‘We have tried to ensure residents

have been able to keep in touch with

family the whole way through these

trying times,’’ Mischeal says.

Support from the Ministry of Health

and the Canterbury District Health

Board has been invaluable.

‘‘Everyone has come on board and

worked together and kept us in touch

every day, keeping us connected.’’

Mischeal says because of the nature

of Covid­19, homes such as Adriel are

vulnerable. However, protocols are in

place and they have kept everyone

safe and well.

By DAVID HILL

Kaiapoi is once again showing

resilience in the face of adversity.

Waimakariri Deputy Mayor Neville

Atkinson says the town’s earthquake

experience meant the town and the

wider district were ‘‘semi­prepared’’ for

the impacts of the Covid­19 lockdown.

‘‘The attitude around town is

extremely positive. People are looking

forward rather than back.

‘‘There is alot of resilience in the

district as aresult of the quakes, so even

though it’s very different —it’s a

pandemic —people were semiprepared.’’

While the recovery could take several

years, Mr Atkinson says the big

advantage for this recovery is there is no

infrastructure damage.

‘‘We need to look at recovery not just

as adistrict, but also from aregional

point of view as part of Greater

Christchurch and also Canterbury as

well, and we also need to consider how

Canterbury fits into New Zealand Inc.

‘‘None of us will recover on our own.

We need each other.’’

Mr Atkinson says, besides Covid­19

itself, his biggest concern is the mental

wellbeing of residents.

‘‘Like everybody I’m concerned about

what people are really thinking. I’m

keen to find out how people are actually

feeling.’’

Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi Community Board

chairwoman Chris Greengrass says she

has been pleased to see the increase in

traffic in the town over the last week.

She hopes to encourage landlords of

empty shops on Williams St to make

them more attractive to bring in tenants.

‘‘The whole environment has changed,

so it will depend on people’s mindset.

Will people be going to the malls?

‘‘Places like Kaiapoi and Rangiora

may become more attractive places for

businesses to rent.’’

Mrs Greengrass also chairs All

Together Kaiapoi, which was

established as the You Me We Us

Kaiapoi Project to support community

Boating fun ... Edie Barber and her younger cousin Willow Henson, in an aqua boat

during last year’s Kaiapoi Spring Festival. All Together Kaiapoi is hopeful it will be able to

stage the festival this spring.

recovery after the earthquakes.

She hopes activities can still happen

in the coming months, even if they are

reduced.

While the Kaiapoi Art Expo and the

Fire &Ice Festival have been cancelled,

All Together Kaiapoi still plans to put up

lanterns along Williams St during the

winter “which will give something for

the locals”.

Earthquake commemorations

planned for September 4, to mark the

10th anniversary, have been postponed

until next year, but All Together Kaiapoi

still hopes to proceed with the spring

festival in late September.

‘‘We probably won't be able to have

Party in the Park, but the week prior we

will look at putting the decorations up

the street and we will encourage

businesses to put up window displays,”

Mrs Greengrass says.

Sadly, the children’s division of All

Together Kaiapoi, KYDz, which was due

to meet in March, has been ‘‘put on the

back burner until next year’’.

River effort to help at-risk terns

Nationally endangered native blackfronted

terns have been handed abig

advantage when it comes to the ongoing

battle against braided­river predators

on the Clarence River.

Aerial weed control is scheduled to

take place in autumn, as Covid­19

restrictions allow, after aerial surveys of

nesting islands in February indicated

weeds were growing back, the Kaikoura

land management and biodiversity

officer for Environment Canterbury

(ECan), Heath Melville, said.

The weeds reduce the viability of

nesting sites, which are monitored as

part of ECan partnership's with the

Department of Conservation.

The project focuses on restoring the

numbers of black­fronted tern.

In an effort to curb the predator

population, traps will also be laid every

100 metres along the banks of the river,

with the aim of improving the odds of

survival in the terns' nests, Heath says.

The riverbed has been degraded

throughout its catchment by predators

and weeds, which threaten the braided

river habitat.

In the breeding season, terns pick

braided river islands free of woody

vegetation to nest, which the likes of

broom and gorse can rapidly colonise.

This reduces available nesting

habitats and forces terns into less

desirable locations where they are more

vulnerable to predators and flooding.

Hedgehogs, stoats, weasels, cats, rats,

mice, possums and the karoro (southern

black­backed gull) have all been

targeted with the trapping strategy

because of their hunger for eggs, chicks

and, occasionally, adult birds.

Karoro are significant predators of

birds that depend on braided rivers for

breeding grounds and food, such as the

black­fronted tern.

The terns are endemic to New Zealand

and have ‘‘threatened –nationally

endangered’’ conservation status.

In 2016, the Kaikoura Zone Committee

committed $250,000 of Immediate Steps

biodiversity funding over five years to

protecting indigenous biodiversity in the

Clarence/Waiau Toa catchment through

ongoing weed control and pest

management.

Heath says it is important to be

providing the native terns “a hand up”.

“We’ve seen huge benefits to trapping

and habitat enhancement over the

course of the study.”

“Above­average river flows in October

created many natural islands and

cleared vegetation to the benefit of the

birds.

“But, unfortunately, high flows

followed, leading to islands being

flooded and only 14 chicks fledging this

season compared to 142 chicks the

season before,” Heath says.

Graduate ... Apassion for sheep led Lucy Burrows to complete aPhD in sheep genetics

at Lincoln University.

Lucy tackles flystrike

in her university work

By DAVID HILL

Flystrike is no laughing matterfor

Canterbury sheepfarmers, butafamily

joke led to aRangiora womanstudying

genetic resistancetoit.

Lucy Burrowsdeveloped an interest for

sheepgenetics while at Rangiora High

School.

“My brother John had jokingly said that

one of his friends was trying to breed

sheep, on alifestyle block, thatweren’t

susceptible to flystrike.

“It occurred to me, ‘wouldn’t it be goodif

we could breed asheep thatwas resistant

to flystrike’.”

That was during the summer afterher

thirdyear at LincolnUniversity andshe

was looking for atopic for adissertation as

part of the requirements for her science

honours degree.

She proposed the topic to her

supervisor, Professor Jon Hickford, and

went on to studythe FABP4gene for

possible resistance to flystrikeinsheep.

Lucy found the development of agene

marker test for selecting sheep thatare

genetically resistant to flystrike was

possible, but more research was needed,

so she spent afurtherfour yearsatLincoln

University’s Gene­MarketLaboratory and

completedaPhD. “We probably won’t

eliminate flystrike, but we cancertainly

reduce its impact,” she says.

The original dissertation is beingpeerreviewedfor

publication in ascientific

journal.

Lucy was born at Culverdenand her

family moved to her maternal

grandparents’ farmatKaitaiawhen she

was eight. The Burrowssettled at

Horrelville, nearOxford,threeyears later.

Her parents, Tom and Fiona Burrows,

are well­established Corriedale and

Perendale sheep breeders,while brother

John has DorsetDown sheep.

Lucy has taken ashine to the less

common Shropshire breed. “I hadmyfirst

lambing seasonin2008 and my dad helped

me alot with managing them, whichwe

have worked on together.”

Now that she has graduated, Lucyis

working at the Ministry of Primary

Industries’ animal healthlaboratory in

Wellington.

She saysthere are plentyofgaps in the

studyofsheepand other animals for other

budding scientists to make their mark.

HARVESTING CONTRACTORS HAPPY TOBEBACK ATWORK

Harvesting contractors in Canterbury are feeling

more optimistic following the return to work

under COVID-19 Alert Level 3. Log markets in

China plummeted inFebruary, and all harvesting

operations were forced to stop under Alert Level

4leaving many workers with an uncertain future.

Operations have been allowed to start upagain

with strict protocols around physical distancing

and hygiene. International and domestic markets

for New Zealand logs are improving and there is

renewed interest from private forest owners

wanting to take advantage ofthe current

opportunity.

Alex Davies ofDavies Logging (pictured) says he

is just happy to be able tostart harvesting again.

“It has been atough year for loggers, especially

these last few months. It’s great to see the

demand for logs recovering and being able to get

back to work”. Alex ispictured here inhis Tiger

Cat processor in asmall woodlot inthe

Waimakariri District.

The logs Alex iscutting will be sold through PF

Olsen into domestic and export markets to

generate the best returns for the forest owner.

The Canterbury region isfortunate to have solid

and well-established domestic log processing

facilities. This domestic processing capacity

provides price stability that benefits the forest

owner and workers right along the supply chain

by reducing exposure to volatile export prices.

The mix of domestic and export log options

enables forest owners to maximize financial

returns and utilize all different parts ofthe tree

with variable log qualities.

Market update

Domestic demand for structural grade sawntimber

prior to the COVID-19 lockdown was very strong,

driven mainly by construction in the upper North

Island. There was also asurge in DIY sales.

Sawmills are currently assessing demand

post-lockdown as they recommence production.

The New Zealand Government has also signalled

an intent to undertake infrastructure projects to

kick start the economy.

Log prices inChina have increased by30% since

New Zealand entered the COVID-19 lockdown.

The log sales are in USD and with the NZD also

weakening against the USD over this period, this

has further increased the prices New Zealand

forest owners receive for their logs. Ocean freight

is also very cheap currently with reduced demand

and low oil prices.

Before the New Zealand COVID-19 lockdown log

stocks inChina had reached 8million m 3 .They

remained stubbornly high as New Zealand logs

continued to arrive in China onvessels that set sail

just prior to lockdown. Log stocks have started to

reduce and are now below 4million m 3 .This trend

will continue as it will beseveral weeks before the

first of New Zealand’s post-lockdown logs reach

China.

Concern among Chinese log buyers about global

log supply is supporting current strong pricing. Log

supply from many countries is still affected by

COVID-19 restrictions. There is reduced supply of

logs and lumber from Russia due to unseasonably

warm weather hindering their winter harvest

programme. The previously growing supply of

spruce from Europe is currently constrained due to

alack of consumer demand in Europe for Chinese

products leaving very few containers available to

be back-loaded with logs.

During the first three months of the year (Q1

2020), China imported just short of 12m m 3 of

logs which was down about 20% from last quarter

of 2019 (Q4 2019) and down around 15% in

comparison with the first quarter of 2019 (Q1

2019).

While the current situation is very positive, there

are some concerns about the China log market in

the medium term. Some sawmills inChina are

struggling to operate profitably with the high cost

of logs and we have yet to see any stimulus

package from the Chinese Government have a

material effect ondemand. Let’s hope that

demand for logs continues to recover post

COVID-19 both domestically and internationally

and benefit New Zealand forest owners, logging

contractors and wood processors alike.

IS YOUR FOREST OLDER THAN 24 YEARS?

Are you ready to take advantage of the upswing in

the domestic and international log markets?

Demand in the NZ and Chinese log markets is strong

The domestic and Chinese log markets are already improving as

industry continues to return to normal levels with low global

supply. Chinese log stocks have reduced while NZhas been in

lockdown and demand for NZ logs is returning to normal levels.

This points toward strong pricing.

Don’t get stuck in the queue waiting for

contractors!

Kiwi views on trees changed

Climate change has changed the way

New Zealanders view trees, says

University of Canterbury head of

forestry, Professor Bruce Manley.

He has worked in forestry since 1976

and says forestry plantations are

essential to meeting New Zealand’s

international obligations and

reaching the carbon­zero goal.

“The only way New Zealand is going

to meet that is, in part at least, through

using plantations and in native forest

reversion.”

He says “native forest reversion”

can be achieved through supporting

the regeneration of native species to

naturally occur, when there is a

natural seed source. While there are

good long­term environmental

benefits to native tree plantations,

they tend to take more work to

establish than exotic trees.

“The challenge with natives is that

with radiata pine you do aweedicide

spray when you plant it and then a

year later, but with native species you

may need to do it for 10 years.”

Native species often need a“nurse

crop” of pine, manuka or kanuka to

help become established.

Forestry school stands tall

Now is an exciting time for young people

to get into forestry, says University of

Canterbury head of forestry,Professor

Bruce Manley.

While exporters have faced uncertainty

in the logging tradewith China due to

Covid­19,there have been big opportunitiesfor

graduates in recent years. He

expects that to continue long term.

“It’s an exciting time to be in forestry.

There’s been amazing volumes that have

been harvested forexport in the last few

years and the One BillionTrees initiative

has put forestry centre­stage.”

The university’sschool of forestry is the

only one of its kind in Australasia,

meaninggraduates are in demand on

both sides of the Tasman.

“Our graduates have been getting jobs

very easily. Our students have been

getting offeredsummer jobs in Australia

to encourage them to go back and work

there,” he says.

Two years ago, the school attracted

about 25 first­year students annually for

its four­year forestry sciencedegree,

while just five or six ayear were takingup

the forestry engineering degree.

ForestryMinister Shane Jones visited

the school in 2018 to ask how the

government couldhelp. “We said ‘we

need to increaseour profile’.’’

From that meeting,scholarships were

made availabletoencourage more

female and Maori studentstostudy

forestry.“Last year the quality wasso

good they ended up giving eight scholarships

rather than the four they’d planned.

“This year they presented six and next

year they plan to award another eight.”

Scholarshipsare also available through

the WIDE (Wood Industry Development

and Education) Trust and from forestry

companies, meaningabout half of the

forestry studentsare on scholarships.

Last year there were 41 first­year

forestry science students. There are 34

this year, and 15 forestry engineering

students entered their firstprofessional

year this year.

Fate of wood products explored

AKenyan student hopes her research

into harvested New Zealand trees will

help this country meet its climate

change targets.

Anne Wekesa has been studying for a

PhD in forestry science for the past

three years at the University of

Canterbury, researching the carbon lifecycle

of New Zealand­harvested trees

which remain in the domestic market.

“It used to be thought that when atree

was harvested the carbon entered the

atmosphere, so in New Zealand the

information has been lacking for how

long carbon stays in wood products.

“I’m hoping my research will be used

in developing policy in New Zealand, but

it could be applicable in other countries,

including Kenya.”

Ms Wekesa talked to sawmills,

manufacturers and pulp plants, but

found many had little idea where wood

products went after being processed, so

it had taken considerable research to

track timber. Her preliminary data

suggests most domestically consumed

New Zealand timber is used in products

with alife of perhaps 50 years before

being burned.

International researcher ... Kenyan

student Anne Wekesa hopes her research

will benefit the New Zealand forestry

industry.

CREATION

Gardening

The Bible states:

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

1:5 The first day, evening and morning, God divided the light from

the darkness.

1:8 The second day, God divided the waters under the firmament

from the waters above the firmament.

1:13 The third day,God separated the waters and created dryland

and seas. Grass, herbs and fruit trees bearing seed after their own

kind.

1:19 The fourth day, God appointed sun, moon and stars for

seasons, signs days and years. Forlight upon the earth, the sun to

rule the day and the moon to rule the night.

1:23 The fifth day, God made living moving creatures in the sea

and fowl flying in the open firmament of heaven, after their kind.

1:31 The sixth day,God brought forth from the earth,

cattle, creeping things and beasts of the earth, after their kind. His

final creative act-he made man in his image, after his likeness,

male and female.They were to have dominion over all the creation.

Thus, all was finished, God blessed and sanctified and rested the

seventh day.
