Planting a winner for water
WATER quality in upper Tweed has improved greatly after a large bush regeneration project.
More than 12,000 native trees were planted around a four-kilometre section of upper Tweed River’s stream banks.
The three-year project was funded by the Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority and the New South Wales Environment Trust. Two teams of bush regenerators and 14 landholders worked together to achieve the results.
EnviTE Environment project officer Richard Burer said the project proved how effective partnerships could produce results.
“As well as the professional bush regenerators, local landholders have played a part by providing ongoing maintenance during and beyond the end of the project,” Mr Burer said.
