Small landholders are being urged to plant native trees. Glen Innes Natural Resources Advisory Committee says it wants farmers with under 200 hectares to be part of a “re-vegetation project”.
GLENRAC says grants will be available but there would have to be at least 200 trees planted. It’s part of a project to “enable better management of our water, soil, vegetation, biodiversity and cultural heritage.”
It says: “Appllications are currently being called and will close on Wednesday, December 13, 2017.
“Successful applicants will: Revegetate with native tree and shrub species; plant blocks, shelter belts or wind breaks with native trees and/or shrubs; protect planted vegetation from livestock with fencing; plant wildlife corridors and riparian buffers; Improve habitat for threatened species.”
For more information, it says: “Contact the GLENRAC office on 02 67323443 or email@example.com for an application form or visit www.glenrac.org.au .”
