Description

Michael Taylor has participated in a number of projects during recent years that have clearly demonstrated the improvements to the ecosystem and commercial production at "The Hill".

The well-placed belts have significantly improved the capture of rainfall events across the sloping landscapes of The Hill so that soil water availability for adjacent crops and pastures has been increased, and peak storm flow in adjacent creeks and across hillsides ,which have high erosion potential, have been moderated. Ground cover has also been increased and erosion of soils from hillsides has been substantially reduced. The woodlands enhance and buffer existing habitat features in each paddock. Biodiversity is healthy and diverse while sheep have valuable shelter during the Tablelands winter storm chills.
