The Plan

Big vision for a big project

pearsons_81ha

Planting was landscaped into areas of soil suitability and the natural lay of the land.  Special attention was given to water run-off minimising soil erosion on main access roads which had always been a problem.  The property is subject to flooding at the front (highway side).  Salinity became very evident at the front, which is creeping up the hill and killing off some of the old Salmon Gums.
