Farm Forestry - Tour 2
Farm Forestry as a Land Restoration Tool
Sunday 1st May     1.00pm to 4.30pm     $30

A visit to a degraded 34ha property on the western slopes of the Blackall Range in the Conondale district showcasing Farm Forestry as a Land Restoration Tool

Farm forestry has proven a successful tool for the Genesis Foundation in its endeavours to rehabilitate a degraded 34ha property on the western slopes of the Blackall Range in the Conondale district. Serious environmental weed problems are particularly challenging due to difficult terrain and limited landholder resources.

Commercially oriented farm forestry is proving successful for weed control, with eucalypt and rainforest timber plantations effectively shading out many weed varieties. However, forest establishment on this difficult site has not been without its challenges. This tour will visit planted forest stands up to 12years old and look at the factors contributing to the successes and challenges of forest establishment on this rural property.
