June 2009 Field day

A well attended meeting with the usual flair for turning out a fine feed for morning tea and lunch. A particular prize to our host member for the innovative water boiler. Our host walked us through the trials and tribulations of preparing property vegetation plans and obtaining permission to log a private native forest. This was followed by an inspection of the proposed logging area and lively discussion on the operations plan and the code. An interesting and stimulating meeting.

Hunter Farm Forestry Network (HFFN) facilitates the exchange of information about farm forestry and promotes the productive and sustainable use of trees on farms in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales, Australia.

Farm Forestry takes many forms including timber belts, windbreaks, revegetation projects and timber production

Farm forestry includes  commercial trees and shrubs incorporated into farm operations.

Farm Forestry improves agricultural productivity.

It’s about which tree you want, for the purpose that you want.
