Description

To all those involved in planting natives for conservation and biodiversity come along to a short field-based workshop to learn how to monitor the success of your plantings. Easy-to-use rapid methods for measuring the survival and early growth of planted natives suitable for small and large scale planting programmes have been developed by Trees That Count in collaboration with the Wellington City Council.

It is fair to say that most people involved in planting projects tend to focus on ‘getting trees in the ground’ or ‘getting rid of weeds’, rather than on monitoring the outcomes of their work. However planting projects sometimes don’t turn out exactly the way they were planned. Therefore, visits to your site after planting to evaluate progress, and to intervene if necessary, should be essential parts of any revegetation programme.

Robust monitoring of survival and early growth enables us to determine how successful planting has been and to discover what has contributed to its growth or decline. So come along to our 'hands-on' workshop where we will demonstrate basic and advanced monitoring methods for sampling the performance of native planting projects. You will have a chance to set up plots and measure planted natives that you can implement with your own planting projects, and we will discuss options of how you can process the data too.
