Farm forestry pruning field day


A farm forestry pruning field day will be held next Monday 10th September from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon at Taylor's property, Eddington-Dunolly Rd, Eddington.


Pruning of farm timber plantations is crucial to the successful production of sawlogs and other wood products from plantations.


John Taylor from Department of Primary Industries [DPI] will describe the establishment process for his plantations, and DPI Farm Forestry Officer Shaun Quayle will describe and demonstrate pruning techniques for young forestry plantations.


If you have a young plantation ready for pruning, or if you are interested in finding out what's involved in managing a timber plantation, then come along and join the discussion.


Call Shaun Quayle on at DPI Epsom on 5430 4563 or email for a map to the site or to register your interest.
