NPWS Bitou Control Program

May 2nd, 2012 by

Gone Native annually supply local National Parks with provenance seed as part of their yearly bitou control program.

After arial spraying, seed from species endemic to the coastal dunes are dispersed to replace bitou, and aid in dune stabilization.

This method helps to reclaim kilometers of coastal dunes that have been lost to this noxious weed.

Rotary Park – Jerseyville

April 24th, 2012 by

In 2004, a portion of riverbank at Jerseyville was revegetated with native riverbank species by South West Rocks Rotary club, thanks to funding through an EnviroFund grant.

In 2011, Macleay Landcare Network received further funding through their Revegetating the Macleay project, and engaged Gone Native to provide over 2000 plants for the revegetation of several sites in the Jerseyville area.

One of these sites was an extension of the now established planting that took place in 2004.

Gone Native worked along with the local GreenCorps team, members of the SWR Rotary Club, and Landcare volunteers to prepare the extension site (weed eradication and mulching) and plant nearly 500 new plants.

Camphor Laurel control for KSC

April 24th, 2012 by

Gone Native is currently involved in a Camphor Laurel control program with Kempsey Shire Council.

This involves chemical control by drilling and injecting large trees and spraying emergent growth. These trees are being replaced with suitable native species.

We are also making use of native strangler fig species in trees that are in potentially dangerous situations(i.e roadside) making it impossible to  control them with conventional methods.(For more details please refer to the Figs for Camphor’s  article in our News and Resorces page).

This is an effective long term control also being employed by Maclaey Landcare Network.
