Henderson case resolved

Fewster, S. (1980) Henderson case resolved. 24 April 1980. p. 1 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Perillup farmer Bert Henderson will reafforest 30 hectares on his farm in the Kent River catchment area. The Public Works Department has withdrawn an application to force Mr Henderson to plant trees on a 32 hectare site over which he was convicted in the Albany Court on 22 March 1980 of illegally clearing.
Mr Henderson said that the outcome meant he had opportunity to control salt on his farm and help the government achieve its aim in controlling salt in the Kent River. Replanting would commence with 625 trees a hectare, with Interceptor banks being installed before the trees were planted.
