Summary

Pine wildlings and other weeds encroach a highly intact part of natural vegetation.

This project includes weed removal by spraying and/or mechanical means. The weed removal occurs in Regional Ecosystems 12.5.12/12.5.10 & 12.9-10.4. There are known Nationally Endangered and State-listed Pineapple Zamias in the site.

The area is approximately 200ha, and is bounded by neighbouring residents in Wallu on the southern boundary. Kangaroo Creek tributaries form the western and eastern boundaries.

Benefits

  • Reduction in weeds and weed seedbanks
  • Regular monitoring of this site will be undertaken by Defence personnel to ensure the weeds do not impact on this highly intact area.
