Vegetation

Council manages around 10,000 hectares of natural area reserves, riparian corridors and road reserves with high biodiversity values. These areas contain remnant native vegetation and high-value regrowth vegetation and provide significant habitat for native wildlife. Remnant and high-value regrowth native vegetation can be used to assign value to ecosystems.

  • Native trees

    By using local native plants you are helping to preserve the genetics of the plants and helping to ensure the plants survival into the future.

  • Riparian & reserves

    The vegetation represented in the Reserves and Riparian areas are quite diverse extending from coastal estuaries and open beach fronts across the coastal lowlands and hills to the mountain ranges in the west.

  • Environmental and conservation reserves

    Council manages around 10,000 hectares of natural area reserves, riparian corridors and road reserves with high biodiversity values.

  • Revegetation

    Planting native species helps repair and improve degraded landscapes by restoring natural plant communities and ecosystems that have been lost.
