Situated between Cunderdin, Merredin and Corrigin sits a small town called Ardath. Here Martin and Sheena House farm a large property comprised of mainly medium to heavy country. Each year they plant trees on their property to create micro climates and protect the landscape from erosion. With funding available through Wheatbelt NRM they decided they would apply for some oil mallee seedlings to protect three low lying, flat paddocks (330 ha) which are susceptible to frost. With the aid of their local Natural Resource Management Officer their submission was accepted and they received funding for 20,000 oil mallees. Martin mentioned, “Without this project our budget limits the amount of trees that we plant each year”.
