Bush regeneration is the practice of restoring bushland by reinstating and reinforcing the system’s ongoing natural regeneration processes. Bush regeneration work aims to rehabilitate the bush from a weed infested or otherwise degraded plant community to a healthy community composed of locally occurring native plants.
Bush regeneration is not just weed removal, it is an integrated approach that encourages the bush to ‘bounce back’ through natural processes. This approach must focus on many aspects of the environment such as habitat, drainage, weed sources and establishing native communities.
These program goals require commitment, long-term planning and the development of a variety of skills, concepts and techniques.
