In 1973 Mrs V. Lawson (left) and Mrs O. Langford, from the Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society, checked petition forms asking the New Zealand government to abandon its scheme to mill 340,000 hectares of state-owned beech forest in Nelson, the West Coast and Southland. The scheme was vigorously opposed by many New Zealanders and was eventually abandoned, although smaller areas of beech forest on public land were milled until 2000.
