29/06/2010 - Revision of a State Government Planting Guideline


HVP_Trees_1801DSE has developed a comprehensive series of silvicultural guidelines called Native Forest Silviculture Guidelines. They provide the guiding knowledge and principles for silvicultural operations in Victoria’s native State forests. On contract to DSE’s Land and Fire Management Division, Forest Solutions has just undertaken the first complete revision of one of the 17 Guidelines - NFSG No. 9 – Eucalypt Planting.

Part of the revision involved reviewing recent planting operations. Forest Solutions accordingly visited Hancock Victorian Plantations (HVP) on behalf of DSE to learn the latest thinking on planting, HVP being one of Victoria’s premier planting organisations.

 The result has been a fully revised NFSG No. 9  with significant improvements, including new techniques for fertilisation, monitoring, and supervision in the field. DSE plan to release the revised Guideline later in 2010.
