Subject: Private Forest Unit offers to assist landholders with the management of their private native forests
Dear Catchment Management Authority I write to inquire about the possibility of some income for my land by way of salinity benefits, carbon sequestration, biodiversity enhancement and / or soil and water quality improvement after my 40 years of conservation-based land use. I would like to develop my property for education, Bio Diversity and research, even eco tourism. It is is already a Wildlife Refuge and listed on the NSW BioBanking site but is yet to offset a development. Your website says that the Private Forest Unit offers to assist landholders with the management of their private native forests and I am certainly interested in this with the view to produce environmental credits of some kind.
Thanks and regards, David
