Recreational leisure-craft increase the rate of erosion, exposing their root systems and destabilising the tree’s foundations. Around Mildura, a network of weirs retains water, giving a false sense of actual water levels. Drought is severely affecting the region in Australia. The situation is dire for those relying on the Murray-Darling River system.
