We have had some germination of Corymbia citriodora seedlings at Tulipwood!
But unfortunately we lost some seedlings to a hungry cow who broke through our fencings! Nevertheless we have evidence of success. We will be re-sowing in the next few weeks.

After the driest three months in 25 years we finally have some rain at Jimboomba! Yesterday was finally the best day for the start of our direct seeding project to restore wet schlerophyll forest. Thanks Greening Australia and Logan City Council for all the help setting up this restoration project. We have another direct seeding scheduled for March 2015 when we plant our Acacia spp. Nice way to end off the year. Stay tuned for the upcoming video!
November 4, 2014: We have postponed the direct seeding because of the driest October in 23 years across South East Queensland. We hope that November will bring some rain. Fingers and toes are crossed.
September 07, 2014: This weekend the direct seeding project was started. We have planned out the future forest by putting stakes into the ground to guide the areas where the seed of different species and provenances will be sown. All 255 stakes were successfully put into the ground. Next step is vegetation management coming up the week of the 23rd of September.
