An old machine swings into action

Over to the other side we go! We are now on the other side of the Tone River. This area will not be re-planted. It will however be scarified to help the natural regeneration of the area. This area joins up with pristine bush that has never been farmed. The land was locked away over 40 years ago, it contains a diverse range of lower, mid and upper story plants. It is hoped that the diversity of flora in this block will spread to the area you see below.

You get a good view of the grass lands, the area we hope will, now the soil has been turned over, produce a diverse crop of new native seedlings

This old scarifier hasn't been used for over 13 years - it need a lttle tlc before being taken out for a spin
