Reforesting unused paddocks and restoring creek beds in Mullumbimby, Northern NSW.
The site consisted of approximately a hectare of 30 meter wide creek edge that is partially restored on both sides and represents an incredible opportunity for large scale creek restoration. We hope to add thousands more trees to the property in the near future.
In March 2020 we planted over 60 species of riparian rainforest trees suited for this location and to connect fragments along the creek bed.
The site contains an almost extinct species of plant known as Brush Sauropus. We planted to buffer it and protect it by thicken the rainforest around and potential for it to expand away from the banks of the creek. Once the forest is established in 3 years time, we will remove the weeds that buffer it from open sun and grass invasion currenly, as was the plan of the local landcare group.
