Master Tree Growers

Master Tree Growers Course Completed

Tamar NRM Master TreeGrower Dept AF&F Australian Agroforestry Foundation

In a joint initiative between Tamar NRM and Australian Agroforestry Foundation, a successful Master Tree Growers course has been held in the Tamar Valley. The course participants, predominantly made up of local landholders, heard from national and local experts about planting and managing trees on private property for conservation and profit.

Conversation about Biodiversity
Conversation about the values of biodiversity

The president of Tamar NRM Roger Tyshing said “We were keen to demonstrate that there is a middle ground in timber production which can be profitable and take into account the needs of the land owner, as well as environmental and landscape values. Judging from the feedback received, we think we achieved just that”.

The course started on Friday 14th August and culminated at a presentation night on Friday 25th September, at Design Tasmania and a dinner afterwards. Present at the presentations were Senator Richard Colebeck, Minister for Tourism and International Education and Minister assisting the Minister for Trade and Investment, local Member for Bass Sarah Courtney, MP and Mayor and Mayoress of Launceston City Council, Albert and Lyndle van Zetten.

Revegetation & Painting Our Trailer in Youngtown Regional Park – 2012

In 2012 Tamar NRM and Youngtown Primary School once again joined forces to plant 250 native trees in Youngtown Regional Park. The students also had an opportunity to paint two sides of the Tamar NRM trailer. Our trailer is loaned to community groups to work on their own projects so it was given a much needed ‘colourful and happy face lift’.

The students were divided into two teams – A&B. Team A painted one side (photo 2) and Team B painted the other side (photo 3). Although the original design was there to copy, both teams put their own very distinctive interpretation onto the trailer sides – they were very imaginative and a lot of fun. They also planted 500 natives (photos 1 and 4).

Tamar NRM was again privileged to have this project funded by Jemena (now known as Zinfra) located in Hobart Road, Youngtown. This company has twice worked on something Tamar NRM holds dear to our hearts – the environment.

Our organisation has had the opportunity for students from Youngtown Primary School to be involved with our projects in 2010 and 2012. They have come along to our field days with enthusiasm about what they are doing – they also have young knee caps for bending and planting!

If you have time and are driving or walking past Youngtown Regional Park, go and have a look at the wonderful achievement by the students from Youngtown Primary School.

Revegetation at Youngtown Regional Park – 2010

This project was managed by Tamar NRM in conjunction with Launceston City Council’s Parks & Recreation Department and funded by Jemena. Tamar NRM invited Youngtown Primary School to be involved – Class 3/4 Brady + their teacher. As well there was a small group from the National Green Jobs Corp. All these groups joined forces to complete the planting of 2,500 natives on sites at the Youngtown Regional Park in Youngtown. It was a community venture and by working together it has improved an area needing environmental support.

The natives planted at the Youngtown Regional Park will have the following long term results:
– provide important habitat and wildlife corridors for native fauna species;
– increase the biodiversity of the area;
– redress erosional issues occurring on the slope;
– enhance the skyline in the higher sections of the park;
– create a link between the Youngtown Regional Park and the community.
