TLAP Funded George Street Revegetation
We have constructed and revegetated a large earthen mound along the periphery of our George Street property.
The back-bone of the wind-break is a row of native pines. We planted 120 pines 1.5m apart along the top of the mound. These will grow rapidly and will interlock to form an effective dust barrier greater than 10 m high.
They will look terrific and help protect Port Pirie from lead-dust generated onsite. We have set up with irrigation to give them a head start and will plant a
variety of spectacular native species on the sides of the mound. The mound will be mulched to prevent erosion and to facilitate plant growth.
It will be a stunning sight next spring when it erupts in a blaze of native
colour. This is the first piece in the establishment of a high profile entry to
our world class facility and it will significantly reduce the risk of site dust
entering Port Pirie. This great work has been completed by Phil Lacey and his TLAP team who are situated at the site nursery.
