Blue Mountains Bush Focus of Recovery Efforts
Greater Sydney Local Land Services has partnered with Blue Mountains City Council to deliver a specialised bushfire recovery project, designed to get the badly damaged bush back from the brink.
Project lead Rob Leslie said this was essential to protect and restore fire affected bushland on private property and council managed areas from erosion and weed invasion.
“While not overly glamorous, this is incredibly important work that hopefully prevent large amounts of silt and ash from impacting the waterways in Popes Glen, Govetts Brook, Hat Hill Creek the Upper River Lett sub-catchment and Mount Wilson, Mount Irvine and Mount Tomah.
Mr Leslie said many weeds had thrived in the wake of the bushfires including Gorse, Broom and Himalayan honeysuckle which has been invading the hanging swamps in the areas.
“The bushland has been regenerating itself well to this point so now is the perfect time for professional bush regenerators to access the sites, treat the weeds and install the erosion control needed without disturbing the delicate new growth of native plants.”
Mr Leslie said supporting the bush regeneration industry as well as bush care volunteers was crucial during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the expertise and passion for the bush remained.
This funding is part of the Australian Governments National Landcare Program and bushfire recovery effort.
