Dieback Research

Walder, L.S. (1978) Dieback Research. The West Australian, 25 September 1978. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Letter from L.S. Walder, Edinboro Street, Joondanna sharing his view on the research foundation on dieback in forests being established in Western Australia at a cost of several hundred thousand dollars looking good in theory.
L.S. Walder suggests it may have an adverse effect when viewed in the light of what research has cost over the past 30 years, with the problem getting worse.
Dieback is not a disease but a condition or complaint that occurs through neglect or malnutrition.
The forests and plant life in Western Australia suffered no ill effects from dieback until the white man entered the State and by his actions put the whole course of nature in reverse.
