Paddock Tree project: Landholder expression of interest

This project aims to secure habitat connectivity through the protection and enhancement of paddock trees in the Kyeamba and Tarcutta Valleys.

We aim to provide support and education to landholders to help identify key sites for paddock tree protection or restoration. We will provide financial assistance to landholders to implement these works, including fencing and planting costs.

The project is being run through a partnership between Murrumbidgee Landcare Inc, Kyeamba Valley Landcare Group and Tarcutta Valley Landcare Group, with funding from the NSW Environmental Trust.
