OAN works with landholders to identify opportunities for establishment and management of multi-prupose tree and vegetation to complement their farming system and local catchment management issues. Our team actively provide landholders with an opportunity to assess their situation and highlight what they want from their trees and revegetation and identify their concerns
Landholders tell us that what they require most is on-farm advice and guidance as they layout, establish and manage their trees. It is one thing to see trees being planted, pruned or thinned on another farmer's land at a field day, but getting started on your own place (ordering the trees, preparing the site, planting, pruning, thinning or even harvesting) can be daunting.
Our team of Peer Group Mentors who are trained and experienced tree growers are available to oversee your project with you, on your own farm, to ensure it has the best chance of success. We are available to help you layout a new plantation, prepare tree orders, plan site preparation, and show you how to plant the trees and guard them. OAN can also lend you some equipment and tools.
It is your project - you are still responsible for providing the trees & shrubs and fences. We're here to help you implement it effectively and efficiently.
