Re: Trees are killing our Koalas

Thanks for posting those photos. So your saying essentially that the photos in pictures one and two are similar to what the areas in the latter photos looked like prior to the tree removal!? That is an amazing difference!

I look forward to your next post.

Re: Trees are killing our Koalas

I would like to hear more too. I agree with tree management, ESP of eucalypts, in the RIGHT places but just can't see how further eroding our waterways could be a positive thing as that piece suggests. If we think about how our country used to function many years ago, silt and trees falling in the c...

Tarwyn park training report.

Hi everyone, Just thought I would report back on the tarwyn park training we finished this week. We studied the first two modules(out of five) and travelled from qld to do it. So we really spent some time and money to get down there to participate! Just a brief outline of who we are.. We breed cattl...

Re: NSF is working in WA

No, thanks for your reply! It is bloody good to hear of your achievements. I'm at the beginning of implementing these practices on farm... And whilst we don't crop, our place is going to be challenging. We have steep rocky plateaus, with thick stands of iron bark and sloping plains that the water fl...

Re: NSF is working in WA

Hi Ian, Just wondering how things are going over there? Would love to hear of any news from your side of the world and how your property is going. Your posts are a great read but also really motivating too. I'm just starting to implement NSF on our place and am very much 'picking up what others are ...

Re: Eucalypts.

Thanks matto, (and Duane)

What u suggest makes total sense and I really appreciate your feedback. :) it's good to have outside ideas, and confirmations when it comes to such a big job, somehow makes it a little less daunting!

Eucalypts.

Hi all, So for those of us with thick stands of eucalypts, more like eucalypt forests, would I be right in saying I need to break up the monoculture they are creating by introducing biodiversity? If this is the case, would this involve thinning because I can't see how I can increase the biodiversity...

Re: NSF in southern downs and johnsons grass.

Thanks Duane, But do u know of a text that could enlighten me to all the benefits of my weeds!? I am wanting to learn this so that when people try to argue that I'm crazy for keeping my weeds, I can say .... Bam!... It adds nitrogen to the soil and helps to bla bla bla. I want to learn it all.. Well...

NSF in southern downs and johnsons grass.

Hi all, I am obviously new to NSF and am really exciting about the future of our farm! It is like most of Australia, eroding, depleted of nutrients and lacking in biodiversity... I'm just glad I now have ways to turn this process around! We are near Warwick, in qld, so if anyone applying NSF is near...
