Title: Our clients talk about their experience working with Landmate crews

(Audio: guitar music)

Description: Sally Day (Greta Valley Landcare Group) and Stewart Day (landowner) stand on in front of a ute on Stewart’s property in the Greta Valley discussing Landmate.

Sally: We did, like, two-and-a-half kilometres of fencing on Stewart’s place and planted over 1300 trees.

Description: aerial view of paddocks showing trees.

Stewart: Without these people we would not have been able to get this project up.

Description: video cuts back to Sally and Stewart.

Stewart continues: To have done this just as a lone farmer was near on impossible to achieve the results that we got.

Description: aerial view of paddocks showing trees.

Stewart continues: It was a pleasure to have them out here and their work ethic in doing the job was brilliant.

Description: Tim Hill (landowner) stands in front of the predator proof fence at the Tiverton property.

Tim: The Landmate crew’s participation in this project, we would not be anywhere near as advanced as we are.

Description: Views of the electrified fence and gates.

Tim continues: I’ve had consistent support from the Landmate crews to erect this fence.

Description: video cuts back to Tim.

Tim continues: Their contribution has been invaluable. It just couldn’t’ happen without them.

Description: Heather Fagg (landowner) stands in front of a tree plantation at Woady Yalock.

Heather: We continue to try and plant at least 1000 trees a year, using Landmate primarily to help us plant.

Description: views of advanced and new plantation strips of trees.

Heather continues: The quality of their work has been fantastic. We get very few misses…

Heather continues: …and we get such good results that we couldn’t endorse them enough.

Description: video cuts back to Sally Day and Stewart Day in the Greta Valley.

Stewart: I was very pleased that you were able to find such good boys to come out and give us a hand and I’m glad that we’re able to help a little bit with their rehabilitation into society.

Description: video cuts to Tim Hill in Tiverton.

Tim: It’s been really satisfying for me to see them commit themselves to work diligently and conscientiously on this project, and take pride in what they’re doing.

Description: Still shot of four Landmate crew members and a Landmate crew leader working on the Tiverton fence. Video cuts back to Tim.

Tim continues: And if that helps them in rebuilding their lives, their self-esteem and their capacity to return to the community and rebuild their lives generally then I’m all for it.
