28 years planting trees for one family

                                          Bruce Lefroy inspecting 2013 creekline revegetation.

There is a lot of satisfaction in returning back to a farm and seeing how tree planting and fodder crops can  improve the ambiance and profitability.
I've been going back to Cranmore Park Stud in Walebing for 28 years to plant trees for Bruce Lefroy.
We started off creating shelter belts of Eucalyptus for the stock to give them some shade and wind protection. I'm now revegetating the creeklines with salt bush which create a fodder reserve for the poor seasons.
I encourage farmers and landholdrs to chip away at their landcare issues.
