Talks 'n' Walks with the Wildflower Society of WA Armadale

Have a look at the many walks and talks planned by the Armadale branch in the following file.  flyer_walkstalks_2017feb.pdf.

It's easy to protect your trees from dieback disease...

Our field days provide our community with the opportunity to learn how to treat their own blocks to protect against dieback disease. If you are a local then may borrow our equipment for free if you come along and help out on a field day. It is cheaper to treat a tree than pay hundreds of dollars to remove a dead one.

A visual explanation showing how easy it is to treat your trees is on our website. There are three instructional videos produced for us by Organic Productions. Go to our website to view them here.
