Event Details

Bob Gray has established a 40ha forestry operating targeting sawlog production. The property is located on steeper Strzelecki hills, which are subject to slipping, tunnel erosion and pugging damage especially by cattle.

The proposal is to establish 5 monitoring sites looking at three species with 2 aspects (west and south facing) to measure tree growth. This will provide objective information to compare economics of sawlog production versus traditional grazing enterprises.

Lunch available, RSVP with registration by 27 November. Call Jill on 5662 5759 / 0419 382 379 or email
