Black and White Challenge:
Love this theme….
are dotted around paddocks to provide shade.
I remember planting plantations, with Dad
as our farm did not have any trees on it.
Neither did neighbouring farms.
I think it may have something to do with clearing land
About twenty years ago the ‘blue gum’ companies came into our area.
Thousands of acres of Eucalyptus Globulus have been planted.
I was phoned just after Dad passed away and
eventually we decided to plant trees.
Harvesting concluded last year and left
a good deal more mess than promised.
However, the land has been re-leased and will be
cleaned and replanted with new trees.
Apparently wood pulp is used, in part, to make clothing.
Trees in the background were to be harvested late last year,
but are still standing and maybe harvested this year.
it is also typical of many farms in Western Victoria.
My post is a bit early , but I am heading off on a day trip
with my son today…won’t be home till late this afternoon.
Cameras are packed. 🙂
