SHEPPARTON, VIC, AUSTRALIA - OCTOBER 09: Fruit grower, Frank Eddy burns over 200 peach trees in response to the low water allocations during the drought in the Murray-Darling Basin October 9, 2007 in Shepparton, New South Wales, Australia. These trees were part of Eddy's plan to reduce his trees by a third over two years in response to the drought. All of these trees were perfectly healthy and had another 5 years of bearing fruit left in them. "It hurts," says Frank Eddy, to destroy his own healthy peach trees. The Murray-Darling Basin of Australia has been plagued with severe drought since the late 1990's and many growers and policy makers are being forced to work on implementing more efficient irrigation systems.
