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.

East Kempsey Island

April 24th, 2012 by

Macleay Landcare Network engaged Gone Native to supply 2360 plants for the East Kempsey Island project.

This included an order of over 200 longstem trees.

The Island is prone to flood and this method of planting has been highly successful in bank stabilisation and keeping down plant mortality rates.

For more information on long stem planting please refer to the article in our News and Resorces page.

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.

Planting

April 23rd, 2012 by

So now you have the tubestock, who is going to plant it all??

At Gone Native, we have the tools designed specifically for mass plantings of tubestock, hiko cells or forestry tube size. We have worked with local council, landcare groups and local environmental projects to undertake mass plantings for Wildlife corridors, river restoration and revegetation projects after extensive weed work.

Another technique useful in certain situations is longstem planting. At Gone Native we have used this technique in riparian situations and found it to be very effective. Longstem planting is more involved than traditional methods but can greatly increase your plants chances of survival in high risk areas ie. Flood prone land or riverbanks. Gone Native can grow your longstem tubestock to order and experienced in long stem planting methods.
