Steve is a 4th generation forester with Lane and Sons. Steve’s family have several centuries of Kauri in their blood. His great grandfather established the Totara North Mill which was the largest timber boat building entity in the southern hemisphere.
Steve is a walking encyclopaedia of native timber and can enchant you with stories of the New Zealand bush for days on end. He has been supplying timber for instruments to Laurie Williams for many years. Filming with Steve for SOTK was a constant source of laughter and somehow we made it through intact.
