Tree and Vegetation Project

Back

The Vegetation Sub-Committee aims to increase public awareness of the importance of the range and diversity of our natural vegetation types. It was formed because of the alarm we all felt over the lack of legislation to protect our natural assets. Often developers have been able to mass clear large tracts of the native environment. Even some private landholders are unaware of the importance of ancient habitat trees.

The Sub-Committee’s main activities so far are:

  • To document and register significant trees for the Indigenous Tree register.
  • To educate the public about our Bribie environment by writing media articles and being a part of kindergarten and school programmes.
  • To respond to the public’s concerns about threatened trees.
  • To consult with Council and relevant government personnel when tree issues arise.

BIEPA is negotiating with MBRC and the Developer to save some of the trees slated to be removed in order to widen Renton Lane, which runs from The Boulevard, Bongaree, to South Esplanade.
