Before and after images of a shelterbelt planted on a farm at Narrawong. These pictures provide a visual on the growth rate of indigenous vegetation when planted out in wide 110 foot corridors. The before image is from 2013, the after image 2018.

This holistic approach to managing agricultural farm land has provided shelter and shade to stock, pastures and wildlife. Swamp Gums and Blackwattle’s dominate the tree canopy. In the future this landholder intends to introduce understory plant species to increase the biodiversity on his farm and as a result the productivity.
