We're giving spotted gum a second chance up on the biolink ridgeline. All the spotted gum on the flats below have succumbed to frost. Guarding might help too, especially as Phil and I spotted a roo on the ridge when we arrived early in the morning to plant three clumps and a total of 40 altogether. If at first you don't succeed, try again (at least once!)...
Phil brought along 20 swamp gums ( a gift from Central Highlands Water): "Why do we want any more of those?" I complained. But they're the local dominant woodland tree species, so for consistency of design, they need to be brought back everywhere on site.
Spotted gum gets a second chance

Gib Wettenhall is interested in how we carry out large scale landscape restoration that involves the people who live in those landscapes. That, he believes, would build truly resilient landscapes.
