From the 1980s Linda, with the support of her husband David, established their own nursery and planted and managed hundreds of thousands of trees across their farms in the Scaddan and Munglinup districts. Linda’s aims included land protection, shelter, commercial timber production and beautification. Linda was a long-term active member of the South East Forest Foundation, including serving several years as President.
She participated in Master TreeGrower courses held in Esperance and was also a member of the South Coast NRM Agroforestry Working Group.
In the late 1990’s Linda and David won the WA Tree Farmer of the Year Award and participated in the National AFG Conference held in Queensland.
Linda will be remembered by many for her passion and leadership in promoting and growing trees to enhance rural landscapes and communities.
