    Revegetation Guides

    To support the successful implementation of significant revegetation and restoration programs being delivered around the country in the next few years, we have developed a series of ‘how-to’ guides.  These documents provide guidance for project managers keen to refresh their knowledge of restoration practices, or for those new to the sector, advice on what risks to consider.  We developed these guides on a broad ‘biome’ basis, and some of the material applies across different areas, so you may want to have a squiz at more than one.
