A forest is easy to destroy but it takes a long time to grow!
The traditional bushcraft of the Maori and his skill with tools gives him certain advantages in forestry and bush work. Large numbers of Maori people are employed in forestry and sawmilling. The Forest Service has Maori field officers, draughtsmen and clerks. Last year four Maori boys with good secondary education were selected for technical training as field officers with a possibility of university study in New Zealand and later in Australia, England or Scotland. Another fifteen Maori boys were selected for training as woodsmen at Kaingaroa and Golden Downs. If you are interested, write for the free booklet “Forestry Careers for young Men”.
