Do you have a shelterbelt on your property?

News article |

Shelterbelts are a land management practice that can make an agriculture system more successful through protecting soil, crops and livestock from harsh weather conditions.

Even though they occupy only a small part of your agricultural landscape, its advantages on the ecological and economical perspective are high.

Shelterbelts also have the potential to mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon into the soil through their above and below ground biomass.

Therefore, it makes sense to consider shelterbelts within farm management plans.

The Limestone Coast Landscape Board invites you to complete the survey below to help us better understand landholder's experiences of the effects of shelterbelts on soil health and primary production across our region. It will also help us identify knowledge gaps and to guide our future projects, such as trial sites and workshops.
