Kleinfelder was contracted by a large mining company to revegetate offset areas of woodland and forest communities in the Greater Hunter area with the aim of achieve consent conditions.
Kleinfelder implemented a combination of controlled burns and slashing as an effective means of reducing biomass and preparing the area for seeding. In order to ensure optimum revegetation, Kleinfelder worked with local contractors for seed collections as well as sourcing from commercial seed suppliers. Planting and seeding was performed during favourable seasons to ensure the best results. Kleinfelder's team also used GIS and on-ground mapping to ensure areas that were prone to flooding were not planted with species unable to cope with the extreme conditions.
