NCC: Large-Scale Revegetation Techniques

Investigate successful techniques for ‘industrial scale’ revegetation projects.

Why it is important?

Traditional revegetation methods used in the Wet Tropics give good results, but they are costly and labour intensive. With current resourcing, the scale of revegetation is not sufficient to meet the need for landscape scale restoration. Investigating alternative techniques which are less resource-intensive, but still successful in tropical environments, can increase the scale of restoration.
