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.

This project aims to:
  • enhance condition of 14.7ha of swamp tea-tree forest (RE 12.9-10.11 - not currently mapped by the Queensland Herbarium)
  • enhance condition of 0.6ha of riparian vegetation.

Project activities include:
  • 14.7ha habitat restoration through weed control (primarily lantana and corky passion vine in swamp tea-tree forest and glycine and balloon vine in riparian area)
  • initial weed control, which is to be undertaken by a contractor with follow-up by the landholder.

Proposed project monitoring and maintenance:
  • establish two photo-points and take ‘before and after’ photographs
  • landholder to maintain project site.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve biodiversity in the Jimboomba area of the Logan catchment by conserving and restoring endangered swamp tea-tree forest through weed control
  • carry out weed control on 14.7ha of native vegetation habitat (primarily lantana and corky passion vine in swamp tea-tree forest and glycine and balloon vine in riparian area).
