12090: Reducing threats in the nationally significant Brickwood Reserve, Byford
This project will control weeds and disease and revegetate areas of the nationally significant Brickwood Reserve in Byford.
This unique and beautiful reserve is the most extensive example of open Marri and Kingia woodlands left on the eastern side of the Swan Coastal Plain. These are endangered and critically endangered woodland communities.
Vegetation in the reserve is currently in very-good to excellent condition but is in an area of expanding urban land use, and requires careful management for this condition to be maintained.
This project will:
- control Love grass and Watsonia within the reserves 40 hectares of remnant vegetation
- apply phosphite treatment along the Phytophthora dieback front surrounding a 4.5 hectare disease-free area within the reserve
- revegetate half a hectare of highly degraded vegetation on the boundary of the reserve shared with Briggs Park.
