AGS Scheme Planting with Associate Minister for Primary Industries - Jo Goodhew.

Jo Goodhew visited our farm to plant trees with Roger Beattie to mark the success of the first round of the Afforestation Grant Scheme (AGS).

"The AGS is an excellent way for people to make better use of low quality land by planting a wide range of tree species. The benefits of increased forest cover are significant and wide-ranging, not only does it contribute to increased carbon absorption, but it can also play a significant role in reducing soil erosion, improving water quality and mitigating extreme weather effects."
