Summary

Swamp tea-tree (Melaleuca irbyana) 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 conserve and restore 3.8ha of remnant swamp tea-tree forest (RE 12.9-10.11 - not currently mapped by the Queensland Herbarium).

Project activities include:
  • constructing 1200m of fencing to control stock access to the swamp tea-tree forest
  • planting 100 tubestock of swamp tea-tree
  • controlling pasture grasses and other weeds within fenced re-vegetation area.

Regarding project monitoring and maintenance, the project will establish two photo-points and take ‘before and after’ photographs. Weed control will be undertaken by the landholder.

Benefits

The project will:
  • restore and conserve an endangered native vegetation type in Tamborine
  • construct 1200m of fencing to control stock access to the swamp tea-tree forest
  • plant 100 tubestock of swamp tea-tree
  • control pasture grasses and other weeds within fenced re-vegetation area
  • establish two photo-points and take ‘before and after’ photographs.
