November 2008 Field Day

A freezing cold November day on top of a mountain, but a fascinating day none the less. In amongst the planted rainforest it was still and mild. A fantastic effort to push back the Lantana and agricultural weeds and plant a magnificent and diverse rain forest. The day finished off for some by a visit to the local 60m waterfall. Wow. Oh, we also did the AGM thing and re-elected the 2008 committee unopposed.

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