East Gippsland Revegetation Ute Guide
Assisting landholders with their revegetation projects
Do you need to plan a revegetation project on your property?
The East Gippsland Revegetation Ute Guide is to assist landholders to plan their revegetation projects by providing:
- a basic overview of the steps to a successful revegetation project, including site selection, planning, planting, maintenance and monitoring
- suitable species for different sites, EVCs and growing conditions
- plant height
- flowering and seeding time.
A number of photos are provided of each species ranging from juvenile to adult, flowers and seeds as applicable to aid in their identification. Species are divided into three groups:
- GROUNDCOVERS AND CLIMBERS
- UNDERSTOREY SHRUBS
- TREES AND CANOPY
Each plant includes other features, such as:
- the plant’s Ecological Vegetation Class/es
- if the species is identified as a ‘fire-wise’ plant, one that has fire retardant and/or fire-resistant properties that may act as a barrier to or assist in slowing the spread of fire
- the attractiveness of the plant to native mammals, such as koalas, possums, gliders and bats
- if the species contributes to a preferred habitat for frogs
- the attractiveness to bees and pollinators
- the attractiveness to birds, either as a food or nesting source.
A copy of the book can be picked up for either the FEVL office in Orbost, or the East Gippsland Landcare Network office in Bairnsdale. You can also download a copy here.
