Thirsty months for the plants since over 3,000 put in at the beginning of October on bionic, forestry flat and footy field (aka direct seeding area on ImLal South). Phil pictured on the biolink. He has watered many of them twice since the planting day on Sunday 4 October.
Have had a 60-70% survival rate overall, although the Turkish oaks have had an 80% attrition rate.
Plants on W side of embankment looking particularly healthy.
