Re-Vegetation

EnviroAg Services conducts revegetation and bush regeneration to clients in the Southern Highlands, South Coast and Canberra districts

We rehabilitate degraded agricultural or industrial land from the beginning of the project and assess soil conditions and weed infestation, conduct soil remediation, planting and can provide ongoing maintenance.

We supply plants and planting material, including plant guards and wooden stakes, at competitive prices. We plant tree lines, shelter belts, biodiverse habitat plantings and more to help our clients reach a sustainable outcome.

If you need bush regeneration services in the Canberra area or want advice in vegetation control, contact us today on (02) 6238 0261 or email robert.brereton@enviroag.com.aufor more information.

Riparian Zones

Riparian zones are narrow strips of land located along inland water networks and act an important interface between the terrestrial and aquatic environments. The play a role in preventing bank erosion and filtering run off which protects water quality. Riparian zones also support high species diversity.

Riparian vegetation that fringes non-permanent drainage lines (such as gullies) plays the same important functional roles in a landscape. In particular this vegetation will prevent erosion and subsequent growth of a gully.

Riparian zones have been extensively impacted. In particular by clearing for agriculture and introduction of exotic species including plants and animals. Common exotic species that impact riparian zones include willow trees, blackberry, sheep and cattle, horses and introduced pests.

Hard hooved animals have a severe impact on the structure of stream bank. Exotic trees can often be a problem. Exotic deciduous trees and willows (which hang down into the water) can cause a high input of soft and nutritious organic matter. Australian aquatic systems will often not be adapted to this level of input because most Australian flora is non deciduous (this is because producing leaves each year represents a high investment in nutrients that are often lacking from Australian systems). Also, leaves tend to be very leathery and tough to break down, this is mostly an adaption to drying out. These high and nutritious organic inputs into non adapted Australian systems can have consequences such as algal blooms.

The health of degraded riparian zones can be recovered and is usually done through revegetation and control/removal of exotic species. This is usually most effectively done in stages as part of a long-term plan. A small manageable area can be cleared of exotic species and replaced with natives riparian species. Once this area is established the adjoining area can be treated in a similar fashion. This strategy is preferable to treating large areas of stream bank at once for a number of reasons, and is often more financially manageable to the landholder than servicing a large area at once. Treatment of larger areas at once is often not successful and requires high ongoing maintenance.

We carry out bush regeneration services in Canberra, Queanbeyan, Yass, Murrumbateman, Goulburn, Palerang Shire including Bungendore and Braidwood, South Coast, Cooma-Monaro, Wingecarribee and many more.
