Heavy wind damage to trees in the Karkloof

IMG_0037

The first week of June this year saw another heavy storm hit the Karkloof area. Extensive damage was suffered by both pine and wattle trees in the area.

Unfortunately the bark season has closed so there will be very little return from these trees. This comes after severe wind damage was experienced by timber farmers in the Dalton-Wartburg-Glenside area in January this year. Farming is not for sissies!!
