This resource was funded by the Dick Roberts Community Trust.

G. R. (Dick) Roberts moved to Nelson in 1968 to develop 300 acres of gorse covered hillside in Todds Valley, as he could see its potential for a variety of tree crops. Dick was a professional natural history photographer, teacher, founding member of the New Zealand Tree Crops Association and a keen advocate for “tree crops for every micro-climate”, based on his own experiences and observations as a land owner.
