CMA held a Carbon day at Maitland. About a dozen HFFN members attended.  A stimulating day with top speakers on Carbon Credits and Bio Banking. The day ended with a walk through the nearby Earth Care Park plantation. Some HFFN members adjusted their age and rode mountain bikes around the BMX track instead of afternoon tea, while others did the “Water Watch” thing. A good day and thanks to Graham from the CMA.

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.
