Value Of Insignis Pine
Value Of Insignis Pine.
In an article dealing with milling Insignis Pine, Mr. L. E. Balgent, of Nelson, who has probably milled more Insignis Pine than anyone else in New Zealand states: “It is obviously very advisable to plant Insignis trees and plenty of them, in accessible localities, because they will provide the fortunate owner with one of the safest and most profitable investments. There need be no fear of excess of supply: the uses and the possible uses are so numerous that this is almost an impossibility.” Plantations throughout New Zealand are rapidly disappearing as the result of milling operations, and it is obvious that the plantations established by N.Z. Perpetual Forests Ltd., have an increasing potential value.page 60
