Alcoa to seed shrubs from the air

(1978) Alcoa to seed shrubs from the air. The West Australian, 17 April 1978. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Alcoa will extend the rehabilitation of its bauxite mining sites in the Darling Range with the aerial seeding of native ground covers and shrubs to supplement its tree planting programme, using about 425 kilograms of seed on the project. Alcoa ecologist Warren Tacey inspected the mined areas of Jarrahdale and said that the seeding programme would supplement the continuing scheme. Over 700,000 trees had been planted, with a further 200,000 seedlings to be put in this year. The Alcoa programme has been developed in co-operation with the forests department, other State Government bodies and the CSIRO.
