Revegetation of Recharge and Discharge areas

This project was completed in the 2007/2008 financial year. Funding was received for the revegetation of recharge and discharge areas in the Junee Urban Catchment Area. It consisted of a total of 66 participating landholders agreeing to plant a minimum of 100 stems and provide water and care for the seedlings to survive. Council agreed to provide trees, guards and stakes and carry out ground preparation (either digging individual holes or rip tree lines). A total of 11804 trees and shrubs were delivered to landholder in time for planting to coincide with Planet Arks National Tree Day on Sunday 27 July 2008.

This project was considered to be a major success with an overwhelming response form the community. Council will monitor survival rates and continue to provide participants with reminders and other information about tree care.
