WISALTS column

(1986) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 9 October 1986. p. 12 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Each month, the alumina giant Alcoa prepares and sends out a 'Leaflet' to anyone interested in receiving a copy. The leaflet varies in size from month to month, and last month's was one of the bigger variety, with many articles of interest and information. Alcoa is concerned with conservation and rehabilitation in its business dealings and operations, and the 'Leaflet' attempts to spread information about some of their projects. It is mainly though about planting things, growing them and looking after them and making sure that plans work out. Alcoa also distributes a very large number of tree seedlings from its nursery each year. This year's orders (for next year's plantings) are likely to exceed, for the first time, the number available and if your order wasn't in by the due date of 1st October you may well miss out. Tim Negus of the Narrogin Department of Agriculture office details the worth of drawing up a farm plan before you embark on a large scale farm tree planting project.
