Revegetation films from NECMA
Completed in 2022, this series of 7 videos will help you plan a successful revegetation project or just find out more about a particular aspect.
Video 1 is the Introduction to see what the Revegetation Video series is all about.
Video 2 – Planning – you will learn more about how to plan your revegetation project and get the best outcomes.
Video 3 – Fencing – discusses the importance of creating exclusion zones and wildlife-friendly fencing, and it will give you some insights on fencing options that best suit your project.
Video 4 – Site Preparation – builds a case for preparing your site. Adequate weed control and soil preparation will increase the success of your revegetation efforts and reduce the maintenance requirements in future.
Video 5 – Planting – you will learn more about planting techniques and tips to improve seedlings’ survival. But having the plants in the ground is not the end.
Video 6 – Tree Guards – discusses guarding options and what to consider when choosing the best one available for your revegetation project. Tree guards protect your plants against winds, cold temperatures, and grazing.
Video 7 – Farm Dams – talks about enhanced farm dams and how they can add value to your site and revegetation project.
