Landscape Restoration Online Course

Understand environmental systems and the care of vegetation.

The importance of trees to land management cannot be overstated. Often in the past they have been seen as competing for valuable land space and felled indiscriminately.

Over clearing of trees can lead to salinity problems and numerous forms of erosion and land slips Retention and where necessary, selective replanting of trees is now widely practiced and shows major benefits toward improving farm viability and ultimately production.
