Trees On Farms Demonstration

Written by: The Hilltops Phoenix

Trees

The Boorowa catchment in central NSW, like most of the wheat-sheep belt of eastern Australia, has been extensively cleared for agriculture.

Remnant woodland cover is less than 10 per cent and highly fragmented into small patches, often less than 20 ha.

There has been a documented decline in biodiversity across this region linked to declines in landscape function including dryland salinity and eucalypt dieback.

In response to these declines, farmers in this catchment have been involved in land rehabilitation projects for over 30 years.

For seasoned and new graziers in the Boorowa region, a time-controlled grazing management strategy may help to improve pasture condition, increase carrying capacity, assist with drought planning, improve animal performance and increase grazing profitability.

To this end, a one-day hands-on workshop has been designed by the Biodiversity Conservation Trust and the Boorowa Community Landcare Group.

Participants will learn about:

  • Fencing
  • Revegetation options
  • Direct Seeder tree sowing
  • Native flora
  • Existing tree lanes
  • Conservation programs on farms.
