One of our local government clients, the City of Gold Coast Natural Areas Management Unit and Ecosure are working together to restore significant parcels of land across the Gold Coast including Lower Beechmont, Bally Mountain and Trees Road Conservation Areas.
The restoration of approx. 680 hectares at Lower Beechmont Conservation Area requires a number of approaches including weed control using a range of techniques across a diversity of vegetation types; planting to stabilise part of the riparian area; large scale weed control following fuel reduction burns; and the maintenance of all previously worked areas to ensure the continuing health of more than 30 hectares. Timely maintenance has kept costs down and ensures the recovery of native species so over time minimum maintenance is only required.
