Muckleford Landcare Knows How to Plant a Tree!!

Here are some photos of a planting that was done on the Chinaman Creek project just two years ago. Dave and Beth and Nev and Theo went out on Sunday to remove some tree guards and were all amazed at the forest before us.

We will have another session to remove the guards in about a month so stay tuned for the date to be sent out. It’s a great activity to bring your kids to, as they really help us along. We are about one third of the way through guard removal, so will hopefully see you at the next removal day.

    Great work. It would be good to get some more detail on the biodiversity. Looks like the colonisation plants are growing fast as expected and the eucalypts are following in due course.

      Hi Richard, because the planting is on a slope (it goes down a hill to the creek) there are variations in what’s happening at different spots. But there is natural recruitment occurring between the plantings, and the survival rate on the whole is about 99.9% so there are no big gaps and connectivity is really good. Native grasses are establishing, and everything looks pretty healthy.

      Yeah, what we have is a dynamic planting of around 20 species all there to perform a function in the analogue. Best practice ground prep working with contours, top quality plants in hiko’s, and as usual for us no need to water in on planting. Plus a great team of workers who have the capacity for successful outcome driven projects.

    Wow! What do you feed them – the trees I mean. Great outcome!
