logs 690888 640
Unproductive and unused sand dunes in the Coorong, Murraylands and Riverland regions will be soon be transformed into sustainable timber forests thanks to a joint project by Landcare Australia and the Australian Home Heating Association (AHHA).

The AHHA have donated $10,000 towards Landcare’s ‘Agroforestry Demonstration Sites’ project, which was launched at Monarto South on Monday. The project will involve researching which trees can survive the best in unproductive environments and then developing these into plantations across the regions.

Several demonstration sites will be mapped and researched by the Farm Forestry Landcare Network with the aim of simultaneously promoting the sustainable use of timber for home heating.
