A sawmill in North Canterbury produces hardwood timber products from eucalyptus trees. Owner John Fairweather, who was introduced to forestry as a teenager by his father, also grows several species at his 20 hectare plantation in Sefton. Currently he is milling the bearers and planks for the re-construction of the Governors Bay Jetty from 200 tonnes of logs that come from a farm on Banks Peninsula.
