The Art & Science of Restoration

“It takes a little bit of art and a little bit of science,” says native plant agronomist Geoff Woodall. Geoff has been working with Carbon Positive Australia since 2009. He has worked to improve seed treatment, the machinery we use, seeding methodology and weed control. His knowledge gained over many years of restoration work and carbon farming projects ensures the survival rates of the trees we plant. During a recent drought at Eurardy, a site where we are collaborating with Bush Heritage Australia, the landowners have seen survival rates of upwards of 90% (without watering) thanks to Geoff’s expertise.
