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 SEQ Catchments and/or Council Land for Wildlife staff.

Project activities included:
  • contractor and landholder established 500m stock control fencing (four-strand, plain wire top and bottom, barbed middle) by October 2010
  • landholder determined plan for control of tree pear, bindii, mother-of-millions and other weeds and implemented by March 2011.

Proposed project monitoring and maintenance:
  • maintain fencing
  • conduct ongoing weed control
  • establish two photo-points to improve condition and increase extent of endangered swamp tea-tree forest at Peak Crossing
  • establish 500m of stock control fencing
  • carry out weed control of tree pear, bindii, mother-of-millions and other weeds.

Benefits

This project aims to:
  • protect and restore 3.5ha of swamp tea-tree forest.
