Local Landcare Projects
Bengalee Lantana Control
The project commenced in April 2018. Approximately 8 hectares have been cleared.
A planting plan was prepared involving 9 separate zones, mesh tree guards cut and formed and star posts placed in final planting positions. Watering was managed using recycled milk containers conveyed down to the planting sites.
In the cleared areas, 822 natives were planted by the end of Sep 2019 compared with an initial target of 500. Each plant is protected by a mesh tree guard secured to star pickets to protect the plants from wombats, wallabies and deer.
