Parklands has developed a Habitat Restoration Program which is designed to increase native vegetation across the site, reduce fragmentation between existing forest blocks and improve fauna habitat. Parklands has a dedicated habitat restoration team that undertake tree planting on a weekly basis. Many of these operators have been with us for years and have a deep connection with the site. To date, our awesome bush regeneration team has planted thousands of local native trees and shrubs. The majority of these plantings are well established (with greater than 90% establishment rate) and many areas have gained site control with trees in excess of 5metres in height.
In addition to planting trees, Parklands also has a weed eradication program to remove local and exotic weeds. This work has been successfully conducted by our bush regeneration team as well as partnering with National Parks and Wildlife Services to manage lands adjoining the Billinudgel Nature Reserve.
