Huonbrook Herbicide Free Regeneration.

Location: Australia, New South Wales, Kyogle Council, Toonumbar

My project here is about re afforesting 80 hectares back into indigenous rain forest. The main task requires physical effort due to no herbicides being used. Lantana ( South American origin) was the first introduced plant after I removed the cattle from the steep slopes many years ago. Lantana provided the perfect protection for the remaining soils after many years of degradation with the over population of cattle. As slow as it may seem with the gradual slash and layering as mulch with the lantana, the results are a pleasure to watch as dormant rain forest seeds sprout with the mulched lantana providing the perfect nursery conditions.
