The benefits of full row tree removal, cover crops and regenerative practices with grower Rex Harris

Benefits of double ground wood chip (August 2021 MacGroup)

2021 | Australian Macadamia Society | Video

Alloway Macadamias farm manager Johan Oosthuizen and Macadamias Australia Grower Liasion Rohan Orford show how horizontal grinding is assisting to produce a high quality double ground wood mulch from trees being removed in high density orchards. The horizontal grinding process helps to control mulch particle size and the resultant wood strands form a much better orchard floor surface and root growing environment than traditional wood chip from a tub grinder.
