wow big big day, we have just received word that the ripper/mounder is going to be here around noon. We are very grateful to life long friend Morton Nilsson from Gunns in Bunbury who organised this for us. The machine is courtesy of Greg Hodgson from Forest Products Commission in Collie. A big shout to FPC in Collie and Greg – THANK YOU.
Ripping and mound ploughing for revegetation establishment are techniques used to improve the success (survival and growth rates) of planted seedlings.
Mounding is great for the water logged soils around Cockatoo Creek and the Tone River. It will help to encourage early growth of the seedlngs.
