Macropcarpa - A golden finish

Large spreading macrocarpas (Cupressus macrocarpa) are a common sight in rural New Zealand, and are usually found growing alongside homesteads and farm buildings.

Macrocarpa (also known as Monterey cypress) was first introduced to New Zealand in the 1860s, and planted for shelter.

Macrocarpa is highly sought after as a decorative and building timber. It is durable outdoors and can be used without any preservative treatment.

I remember when I was young and use to climb the big old trees on the farm, never would I have thought that the tree could be someones solid wooden floor. As you will see from the pictures Macrocarpa is a very nice timber when sanded and polyurethaned, but like Douglas-fir it is one that we don’t see a lot of.

Like a box of chocolates

With all the new development in Pokeno, the Nufloors Floors sanding Auckland team were not surprised to secure some work in the area.  It can be both exciting and interesting for a new home owner when they discover what type of floor they have.  When we arrived on scene for the quote we could clearly see the build up and old solvent polyurethane on the pine wooden floors.  The house had undergone a complete modernised renovation but it was in desperate need for our floor sanders to get in there and perform there magic.

Ambury Park - Kauri Woolshed

 

Ambury Farm Park is located amongst the southern suburbs along Manukau Harbour, Auckland. Despite its urban location Ambury Farms provides the opportunity for the general public to visit and see a variety of farm animals including but not limited to sheep, cows, lambs, chickens and pigs.


With a historic feel about it, Mangere Mountain erupted approx. 18,000 years ago and this park sits on a field that has been made fertile from the ash of the volcano.  Also close to the waterways the area around the park also provided food by way of kai moana (seafood) and easy launching for canoe of the various nearby iwi (including Wai-o-Hua and Nga ti Wha tua).  The park and the Otuataua Stonefields to the south are the only places in Auckland where Māori stone structures remain on public land. Stone mounds at Ambury mark pre-European gardening sites.

So one may ask; what are the team of Nufloors 4 U doing on a farm?
