1. I was surprised to see pine trees were grown and harvested back in the ’60s. I thought they just ripped up our hardwood Eucalypts.

    It was nice to read on that little sign in the photo that the one of the remaining local workers now works for the department of conservation :)

    • Hi David,

      Come to think of it, I’m not sure how early on they started planting pine plantations but there are quite a few of them in the south west of WA, including some very well-established ones. Not many left near Margaret River though.
