 their properties. ‘Trees on Farms’ aims to promote and assist with the fencing off of existing remnant vegetation, riparian zones & new
strategically located windbreaks which will act as a protection to stock from the elements, habitat for local native species, improvers of
 water quality and erosion control mechanisms and be a vital part of whole of farm ecosystem planning.

farms to sustainable farming and conservation
