Despite two difficult planting seasons, results from the restoration work on Yarrabee Wesfarmers Reserve is starting to show up from the air. Some 550 hectares of this important property in the Link’s Fitz-Stirling area were tackled with biodiverse plantings, and despite windstorms, dry seasons and locust plagues, the work is a valuable contribution to the program. An additional 50ha plantation of sandalwood was added to the southern portion of the property. While still early days, sandalwood growth rates are already exceeding expectations.
