Dieback in natural trees

Walder, L.S. (1976) Dieback in natural trees. Merredin Mercury, 11 February 1976. p. 20 [Publication] [Special Collections]

Summary

Article from L.S. Walder to explain the term "dieback" which is not a disease, nor is it causes by borers, grubs or fungi growth.
Dieback is a gradual process and in the case of the salmon and gimlet trees may take a considerable time.
The author discusses signs of destruction over a long period by clearing of native forests, laying the ground bare, allowing very little run-off from the heavy winter rains, causing the soil to become saturated and boggy.
