Small Trees on Farms

02nd Aug 2017

$60,000

Northern Tablelands Local Land Services is seeking to partner with Landcare networks to deliver investment funding to promote planting of native vegetation and enable ‘small’ land holders within the Northern Tablelands region to implement revegetation works.

This project will promote the value of native vegetation and give landholders the opportunity to focus on the management and benefits of native vegetation in the peri urban and farming landscape. This project builds on the Northern Tablelands Trees on Farms project.

Research into the demographics of landholders has identified a growing peri-urban sector in our region. That is landholders with between 10 to 200 hectares, an off farm income, strong interest in the environment, high engagement rates with Landcare, less production focus and limited time to undertake revegetation and invasive species control.

The project will provide financial incentives to encourage landholders to plant native trees on farms. However the ambitious objective of this project will be to highlight to farmers the production benefits that are also achieved from planting trees on farms.
