The Northern Star - - NEWS -

TURN your weeds into dol­lars with an up­com­ing work­shop about cam­phor laurel as a tim­ber re­source.

Learn of an in­no­va­tive staged ap­proach to con­vert a cam­phor laurel stand into a prof­itable tim­ber re­source and even­tu­ally into a sus­tain­able mixed na­tive tim­ber plan­ta­tion.

Be­come part of a group of in­ter­ested landown­ers who wish to par­tic­i­pate in this project and fur­ther ex­plore this new ap­proach to an in­va­sive en­vi­ron­men­tal weed.

It will be held on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 27 from 12.30pm to 4.30 pm at Eureka.

The pro­gram will in­clude lunch and some great guest speak­ers.
