    as i am now in possession of one of the best acorn collections in the southern hemisphere.
    the time has come to prepare a site .
    Grader bob is coming in a couple of weeks to build a swale we will modify an old dam with an excavator (grader Bob and son Greg are truly beautifull people and sympathetic to the cause)
    We did 600 m of swales 2 years ago so have pretty good template for this area it must have been sucessfull as the local old money family are putting one as we speak their swale is designed to be used as an irrigation channel (it is able to be filled with a lift pump from the river)
    Also having recently completed a master tree growers course im keen to thin ,coppice,pollard., prune and plant into the understory several thousand trees both planted and native forest
    so a fair bit going on if anyone wishes to avago give us a hoy>8)

    I wonder if Grader Bob is related to Postman Pat or Bob the Builder? Sounds like fun! Wish I was closer and had spare time.

    Wow Andrew. Sounds like a real mission. Great work.
    Let me know if you need another site to practise on. :)
