Revegetation at your fingertips

Friday 27 January, 2017
Keen to know what native plants to plant on your property?

The answer is at your fingertips with the popular Goulburn Broken Revegetation Guide now available online on the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority’s website.

Goulburn Broken CMA Project Officer Jim Begley said the new online version offered much of the same practical information as the old hard copy guide but now included even more species.

“The guide still offers general vegetation profiles but we’ve expanded the lists of species to include plants that are suitable for providing structure and cover, or that add to the diversity of a site,” Mr Begley said.

The guide has been used succesfully by Landcare and other natural resource management groups and individuals for more than a decade.

“For example, it’s guided species selection for the recent 20 Million Trees and Biodiversity Fund revegetation projects in the catchment,” Mr Begley said. “Thanks to funding through the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme and after much community consultation and engagement, the original guide has been built on to produce an online web tool that will continue to be of great benefit to farmers and revegetation practitioners into the future.”

Mr Begley thanked Fiona McCallum (Phi-R Pty Ltd) and Kim Wilson (Euroa Arboretum) as well as other botany experts from across the Catchment for their input into the new-look guide.
