John Humphries, forester with the Department of Conservation and Land Management, was a guest speakers at a recent field day. He gave various reasons for having trees on a farming property including giving amenity for both house and buildings, giving shade and shelter. Mr Humphries and his colleagues favour a whole catchment approach with planned plantings taking into account types of trees and especially their sizes in terms of having, or not having tall trees near house or bushy trees obstructing road junctions. A reminder for the next field day to be held on Friday 11 October on Gavin Drew's Gingin property.
