Recently we planted some trees and salt-tolerant bushes in an area of the farm which has become salt-affected and unproductive. Roger obtained a grant through the local landcare officer to help with the cost of fencing the area and re-vegetating it.
The wetter flats were mounded before planting trees with the pottiputki manually. Higher up we direct planted the seedlings using a Kimseeds machine.
Here are some photos...
