The Story of Kaingaroa Forest. The story of one of the world's largest plantation forests, Pumice & Pines is the remarkable story of the visionary planning, massive radiata plantings, and decades of manual and machine labour that transformed waste pumice-land into one of the world's largest plantation forests. Pumice & Pines tells with facts, figures, anecdotes, and over 180 photographs, the story of the Kaingaroa area from pre-European times to the first tentative plantings late last century, the early plantings by prison labour, the experimentation with different tree species, the explosion of plantings in the 1920s, the depression years, wartime developments, timber sales and post-war expansion, the growth of the village, the era of industrial strife, and the end of the Forest Service.
