Summary

Swamp tea-tree forest is considered endangered under Commonwealth and Queensland legislation. 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, Scott Nicholls, has completed Level 3 Property Management Planning training provided by SEQ Catchments and through this has developed a project action plan for implementation.

This project aims to undertake weed control to conserve and restore 1.9ha of remnant and regrowth swamp tea-tree forest (RE 12.9-10.11) and conserve and restore 40ha of swamp tea-tree forest through improved grazing management. The fencing will allow 8ha of swamp tea-tree forest to be managed for minimal grazing, and contribute to sub-divisional paddock fencing for rotational grazing to manage stock access across the other 32ha.

Project activities include:
  • constructing 0.9km of fencing to control stock access for improved grazing management to 40ha of remnant and regrowth swamp tea-tree forest
  • establishing weed control on 1.9ha remnant and regrowth swamp tea-tree forest (RE 12.9-10.11).

Proposed project monitoring and maintenance:
  • establishing two photo-points and taking ‘before and after’ photographs
  • maintaining fencing and water troughs, which is to be carried out by landholder
  • improving biodiversity in the Jimboomba area by conserving and restoring endangered native swamp tea-tree vegetation through weed control and the implementation of improved grazing regimes.
  • constructing 0.9km of fencing to control stock access for improved grazing management to 40ha of remnant and regrowth swamp tea-tree forest.
  • maintaining weed control on 1.9ha remnant and regrowth swamp tea-tree forest (RE 12.9-10.11).

Benefits

This project will:
  • conserve and enhance remnant and regrowth swamp tea-tree forest.
