Case Studies of Private Native Forestry
Pine Ridge is a grazing property in Central NSW, north-east of Dubbo. Owner, Norm Arkell and his family have been farming the property since 1978, predominantly for beef cattle production but they have more recently expanded into boer goats as well. The drought has affected productivity at Pine Ridge and the Arkells have worked with Local Land Services to receive approval for a Private Native Forestry plan to provide an additional income stream.
