Vegetation Management and Restoration
Vegetation Management & Restoration
Wildsite can provide planning and advice on the management and restoration of native vegetation ranging from small remnants on private property to landscape-scale, regional projects across multiple tenures. We are experienced in assessing the diverse range of vegetation and protected area management issues and have a detailed knowledge of contemporary management practices and their effective implementation.
Wildsite can provide you with a clear and concise plan that identifies existing resource issues, outlines desired outcomes and presents guidelines and actions to achieve your management goals. Recommendations are based on experience, scientific literature, on-site surveys and community consultation and specifically meet the requirements of legislative bodies and consider the needs of all stakeholders.
Wildsite understands the need for adaptive and realistic management and provides practical guidelines and actions that are consistent with financial, personnel and social constraints. We can also develop adaptive mechanisms, including monitoring and reporting, to monitor plan implementation and evaluate management progress.
Specifically, Wildsite can provide advice and management plans including:
- Vegetation management plans
- Ecological restoration plans
- Fire management plans
- Protected area management plans
- Property management plans
- Targeted management of threatened species, populations and ecological communities

Wildsite’s restoration plans provide practical actions and guidelines to manage key threats and restore the community through weed and stormwater management, and the restoration of historical fire regimes.
Modified Sclerophyll Forest Key – Northern Rivers
The modified structure and floristics of long-unburnt and regrowth sclerophyll forests hinders accurate classification of sclerophyll forest formations. This modified key underpins revised vegetation mapping to guide and improve NPWS ecological fire management in the Northern Rivers.
