The above video about our trial site in Eungella, outlines the challenges faced by forestry in cyclone-prone regions throughout much of coastal Queensland. Together with our project partners, Pioneer Catchment and Landcare, we have researched methods of forestry, which may provide an alternative in our region.
Current activities include
- Facilitation of the Regional Forestry Working Group
- Partnering with landholders, industry members and Landcare to run local sustainable forestry demonstration trials
- Coordinating field trips and information days to promote sustainable forestry in the Mackay Whitsunday Isaac region
- Review of existing forestry trials in the Mackay Whitsunday Isaac region, Reef Catchments led, supported by the Regional Working Group
