Below are some before and after photographs of a regeneration site which Friends of Plunkett volunteers planted up in May last year (2015).
The after photos are taken in January 2016.
The trees are doing well and some of the native grasses (barbed wire grass – Cymbopogon refractus) are seeding.
There’s also lots of natural regeneration happening at many of the sites with Angophora woodsiana – Smudgee Apple being the most prolific germinator.
We haven’t had heaps of rain this summer thus far but there has been just enough to help these trees pop their heads above the grow tubes.
There will be more plantings planned for March 2016 so keep an eye out on the Friends of Plunkett calendar to get involved in the conservation of the Plunkett area.
