Revegetation

 

The following tips may be useful when revegetating:

 

  • Plan your planting

  • Fences will protect plants against stock damage. Fence first, plant later!

  • Source plants locally, and seek advice on what plants are suitable for your soil type/landscape

  •   Density of plantings can vary, but generally trees between 2-4 m apart. Don't forget shrubs and groundcovers!

  • You will have to address competition such as weeds/grasses. Use weed mats, tree guards, and consider regular slashing, mulching ( around base of plants) and/or spraying

  • Plants from tubestock establish best.

  • Watered regularly in the first few weeks/months, especially if the weather is dry

  • To deter frost damage, treat with potassium rich fertiliser such as seasol prior to frost periods.
