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 improve biodiversity in the Jumboomba area of the Logan River catchment by conserving and restoring endangered swamp tea-tree community through weed control. It will:
  • enhance condition of 1ha of remnant swamp tea-tree forest (RE 12.9-10.11).
  • engage a contractor to undertake 1ha of weed control (particularly lantana, creeping lantana, balloon vine, small-leaved pepper) to restore forest habitat.
  • establish two photo-points and take ‘before and after’ photographs.

Proposed project monitoring and maintenance:
  • establish two photo-points and take ‘before and after’ photographs
  • landholder will undertake weed control maintenance.
