Manuka @ altitude

Recommended Posts

I went up to the Army/doc/Kaimanawa horse trust tour this weekend to see the horses in the Kaimanawas ; (which is basically in several portions of the armies 63 000 ha training zone). The army estimates they are losing 40 ha a year of land back to manuka. Of note at the lunch time chat, the DOC fellow was asked whether beekeepers had access to this area . He said it would be a good revenue "for us", but the access would be an issue! We were at 800 - 11OO m asl, the manuka was healthy, but small /shrubbie. Qu Would bees likely work at that altitude? (Nothing was in flower and coming home over the annie, only sheltered lower altitude manuka is in flower).
