I live in Sydney Australia and we are about to cut down a tree and want to know if Hugelkultur can still be used in what is a termite prone area. Rather if burying the logs from the tree will attract termites. A broader discussion is how do you create an environment that will reduce the probability of termite attack on the house. First post be nice. Gidday.
