Description

This is an early example of a contour tree planting at "The Hill" in New England. An effective way of creating a large area of open woodland without losing valuable pasture production. Water use efficiency and better grazing patterns created by having the trees planted along the contour. A percentage of the trees will be harvested for timber leaving behind a mix of shelter species that can grow to their full potential. Whole paddock plantings also cut the cost of fencing without a major impact on carrying capacity during tree establishment.
