As a result of NEBN and other local community groups negotiations with Gunns regarding the management of their Seaview Plantation in the head waters of the South George River, Bushways Environmental Consultants produced a management plan which demonstrates best practice plantation management as well as achieving protection and restoration of riparian and native vegetation areas.
This land is in the upper catchment of the South George River, part of the St Helens water supply catchment.The land has since passed from Gunns ownership but NEBN is still pursuing (and achieving) better management of the land with the current owners.
In this report information about restoration of Eucalyptus nitens plantations back to native forest is provided. There is a particular emphasis on streamside/riparian areas. This land is in the upper catchment of the South George River, part of the St Helens water supply catchment.
