Summary

Swamp tea-tree forest is considered endangered under Commonwealth and Queensland legislation. With funding provided through the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country program, SEQ Catchments is providing support, advice and financial incentives to assist landholders in the region to conserve and enhance remnant and regrowth swamp tea-tree forest.

The landholder has completed Level 3 Property Management Planning training provided by SEQ Catchments and through this has developed a project action plan for implementation. A baseline condition assessment of the swamp tea-tree forest on the property has been undertaken by Logan City Council Land for Wildlife staff.

Stage 2 of the project aims to:
  • improve condition of 2ha of swamp tea-tree forest and riparian area through weed control.

Project activities include:
  • contractor and landholder to undertake initial weed control (balloon vine, madeira vine, Brazilian nightshade, jacaranda, cobblers pegs, stinking roger, mother-of-millions, asparagus vine, lantana, coral berry, corky passion vine, mile-a-minute, prickly pear, and wandering jew) through basal application and foliar spray.

Proposed project monitoring and maintenance:
  • follow-up weed control by contractor and landholder, ongoing weed control by contractor and landholder
  • establish two photo-points.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve condition and increase extent of endangered swamp tea-tree forest at Jimboomba
  • carry out weed control on 2ha of swamp tea-tree forest and ongoing maintenance.
