How much do trees mean to you? This might seem like a strange question, but it’s important we acknowledge and respect the trees around us for what they do.

Riverlee Farm is a modest farming plot of some 90 hectares near Esperence, in Western Australia. It has been owned by Dorothy and Robert since 2005. Many years of European-style farming, plus the usual South West WA environmental challenges – wind, salt, water – have left the creek lines and catchment areas degraded and bare.

Since European settlement, vast tracts of Australian land have come into private ownership.

This is why Landcare, and other environment groups all over the country, collaborate with private landholders as well as different levels of government to plan [...]
