About the Project

Max Waters was an enthusiastic and much loved pioneer of reforestation of low-rainfall farmland in Western Australia, and the Title of this project honors his memory. Mallee and tree-form eucalyptus have been planted strategically through four farms in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, near the towns of Wagin, Quairading and Kojonup, in 2012 and 2013 expressly for the purpose of carbon abatement. The trees are owned by Fares Rural while the surrounding land continues to be farmed by the landholder. 180 hectares of trees have been planted in narrow belts and small blocks. Both trees and mallees are growing very impressively at last inspection. We are at the stage of generating first ACCUs from this project (Apr 2017). Credits are generated on the basis of a rigorous and strictly legislated field sampling process.


Project Co-Benefits

The underlying motivation for landholders is the improvement of the farming landscape by the incorporation of project trees. Locations are determined primarily by landholders. The reforestation in this project has occurred primarily on unproductive light sandy patches, or along denuded stream banks. Trees are also producing nectar and pollen which is being used by apiarists.
