Macks Creek Tree Guard Collection 2014
HVP, the company who grow and harvest timber in the area, have revegetated areas adjacent to all the waterways (not to be harvested) which run through their plantations with indigenous native plants. To protect the plants against rabbits, etc. plastic mesh tree guards were installed. Now that the trees are several years old the tree guards are no longer required but funds are not available to remove these guards.
So, on Sunday 20 July, we visited an area of plantation in Macks Creek for a working bee to remove and collect the tree guards and their associated wooden stakes. The tree guards are in good condition and available to anyone looking for good quality tree guards. Get in touch with committee members for further details.
