Bushcare Services work with landowners that manage disturbed or modified bushland areas. When planning whole site restoration, the appropriate control of invasive weeds is an expected outcome, but only one of the many considerations when managing a site for long-term sustainability.
Our services and industry relationships provide a network of capable professionals who deliver high-quality and lasting environmental outcomes in the fields of bushland regeneration, practical conservation and the re-construction of habitats in degraded or at risk areas.
Native revegetation (or tree planting) programs are commonly used to restore degraded landscapes (paddocks, mine activities) or to expand tree coverage for nature conservation purposes. Often the goal is to achieve a similar composition to a previously existing Regional Ecosystem.
Bushcare Services provides technical services and consulting for matters relating to ecological restoration planning, design and permits. Our management team and advisory networks come from diverse environmental backgrounds with a strong grounding for practical knowledge.
Waterways are dynamic systems that are subjected to continual change (such as flooding). Bushcare Services have substantial experience in and have had great success with stabilising and re-establishing vegetation along waterways through our use of erosion control systems.
Bushcare Services has a vegetation management unit that works with clients to manage and protect vegetation assets or respond to problematic vegetation including trees in conservation reserves.
We work with clients to control of invasive vegetation, establish asset protection zones for fire prevention and prepare bushland for hazard reduction burning.
Providing a controlled access for the public to experience natural areas can be a great attraction for Open Space bushland and conservation reserves. Bushcare’s construction team can build or maintain tracks to suit a variety of purposes whilst working in constrained areas.
Many Australian animals, such as cockatoos, and sugar gliders, require tree hollows for shelter and breeding. Unfortunately, tree hollows are disappearing at a faster rate than we can replace them due to human encroachment and other environmental disturbances. Bushcare Services can supply and install habitat boxes in trees for many arboreal animals.
Integrated Weed Control is the co-ordinated use of a range of chemical and non-chemical weed control methods. The aim is to incorporate a variety of methods that are cost effective and practical.
