    The NSW Government has announced funding to clean-up orchards severely damaged by the recent bushfires.
    They’ll cover the cost of removing dangerous trees and damaged protective netting and posts orchards in Bilpin.
    The NSW Department of Primary Industries will be contacting local orchardists to arrange for the clean-up.
    The orchard clean-up is separate to the free clean-up program for residential and commercial buildings destroyed by bushfires, that is being delivered by Laing O’Rourke on behalf of the State and Federal Governments.
    Impacted property owners who would like to know if they are eligible for assistance with the clean-up of their property must register with Service NSW as soon as possible. Call 13 77 88 or register at: www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/register-opt-nsw-bushfire-clean
