Today we undertook some more planting in the South Gully. As we have now got some trees and plants in position, the plan for further planting is much clearer.
So the second major round of planting was done today.
Today we took a trip up to Brisbane to find/collect/purchase some new trees and plants. We are now planting the South Gully and endeavouring to restore the rainforest that was previously there.
We also have a number of other places that need planting, including the roadside and parts of the home hill. These areas are part of our battle against erosion.
As we have cleared areas of the property that have been neglected over the last 5-6 years, we have seen more and more of the native plant species return.
The most remarkable has been the Maidenhair Fern(Adiantum atroviride) that appeared in massive numbers as we cleared away grass tussocks on the south and protected side of the house hill.
