Annual General Meeting

TREAT's 36th Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 7th September at the Yungaburra Community Hall commencing at 7.30pm. Annual reports by the President, Treasurer and Nursery Manager will be followed by the election of TREAT office bearers for the next year. Nominations are invited for the various positions on the TREAT committee and will be accepted from 16th till 31st July. A list of nominees will be available for viewing at the nursery by members for 2 weeks prior to the AGM. Members are reminded that they must be financial when voting for the new committee. Subscriptions will be accepted at the AGM. A General Meeting follows the AGM.

Our guest speakers for evening will be Paul and Leanne Hales, who manage Yourka Reserve (in the Einasleigh Uplands) for Bush Heritage Australia (BHA), a not-for-profit conservation organisation. They will present an overview of BHA, including origins, strategic direction and flagship projects such as endangered species recovery and landscape connectivity. They will also talk about everyday management activities at Yourka, such as fire management, weed and feral animal control, restoration and ecological monitoring, sharing the challenges and successes of landscape-scale conservation management.

After QandA time following the talk, the evening concludes with a supper. Plate contributions are appreciated. Everyone is welcome to attend.

A Brief History of the Peterson Creek Corridor

Nigel Tucker

Many TREAT members, QPWS employees, conservation group volunteers, scientists, contractors, students, and landholders past and present, have knelt on the ground at Peterson Creek. Not praying, just playing their part in building the Peterson Creek Corridor, an ambitious project to link the national parks at Lake Eacham and the Curtain Fig. In 2018, the corridor is now a continuous strip of restored vegetation extending the length of the creek through the valley between the two forest fragments. Much of that sinuous strip has the appearance of well-established forest, and indeed the corridor's physical landscape presence has a longer history than many might imagine. The distance between the two fragments is around 4.5km, and that may not seem a lot, but the process of planting bare ground over that distance was more tortuous than the meandering creek itself. The Burchill family near Curtain Fig and Lake Eacham neighbour and dairy farmer Dennis Byrnes were the two landholders who purposefully began re-planting parts of their property, and unwittingly started 30 years of work to plant the longest fragment to fragment corridor in the Wet Tropics.

In the mid-1980s Doug and Sandra Burchill began planting on their low-lying Peeramon Road property, starting with stock purchased from the old Qld. Forestry Department - ironbark (Eucalyptus crebra), bunya (Araucaria bidwillii) and Caribbean pine (Pinus caribaea var. hondurensis). Not the best choices to be sure, but at the same time Dennis Byrnes was planting cadaghi (Corymbia torelliana) - not much better! Soon enough, both landholders gravitated to TREAT, QPWS and the Lake Eacham Nursery, looking for plants that were more ecologically matched to their properties. In 1990/91, Dennis Byrnes began to complete small gully plantings with TREAT and QPWS assistance. In addition, Dennis took sensible steps to establish shade-lots and windbreaks and then began fencing off the creek, which had the important benefit of protecting patches of regenerating rainforest. For the next seven years both property owners continued their efforts, quietly planting small areas yearly. Around the same time landscaper David Leech and TREAT co-founder Geoff Tracey began re-planting Peterson Creek around Yungaburra township, beginning a major effort along that part of the watercourse.

In 1997, around ten years after those initial plantings, then TREAT Secretary John Hall was in the Lake Eacham Nursery office preparing grant submissions for the newly established Natural Heritage Trust (NHT). With the experience of assisting QPWS at Donaghy's Corridor (then only a year away from completion), John asked me to suggest a new corridor project for which TREAT could seek NHT funding. In retrospect, if I'd realised that a Peterson Creek Corridor would take another 20 years, I'd have suggested somewhere else. But the suggestion was agreed to, the submission was lodged, funding was approved, trees were grown, fences were built and landholders got on board - and once momentum started, the project assumed a life and character of its own. Much of the initial momentum was centred on the Byrnes property where large parts of the creek were re-planted. (Dennis once told me that he remembered seeing cassowaries on the creek as late as 1975 and wondered if they'd ever re-appear.)

Immediately downstream of the Byrnes farm lay the properties of Bill and Laura Palumbo, and Sam DeTournouer, who were also supportive of the corridor concept. Over the following years these landholders annually fenced off portions of Peterson Creek, and QPWS/TREAT and the community would plant another 3000 trees, transforming yet another section of the watercourse. At the same time, QPWS began replicating the studies which had commenced at Donaghy's Corridor in 1998. Small mammal colonisation and movement studies began throughout the corridor and in the forests at either end, and plant recruitment studies commenced. Macroinvertebrates were sampled throughout the stream to document base-line populations. Quite quickly though, studies showed that the rapid pace of colonisation seen at Donaghy's Corridor would not be replicated at Peterson Creek. Amanda Freeman's bird studies were a further cautionary note, showing that the old adage 'plant and they will come' should definitely have a Terms and Conditions disclaimer. Equally quickly, it was found that a small number of landholders did not wish to participate in the project, and for some years there were gaps between plantings. Natural irritations (frosts and floods) occurred at regular intervals. Whilst the situation was an improving one for wildlife, the full value and potential of the corridor could only be realised when full habitat connectivity was in place.

TREAT and QPWS continued to work with landholders throughout the next 10-15 years using various funding sources, annually strengthening and extending the plantings where possible but still daunted by some recalcitrance. A critical point in the corridor's development came in 2011 when TREAT member Ian Freeman purchased the grazing property wedged between the Lake Eacham national park and Lake Barrine Road. For Ian, the groundwork had been laid by the Byrnes and the Burchills, and all the landholders who came after them. The vision, hard work and strong sense of ownership for Peterson Creek collectively generated by TREAT and the community, clearly impressed Ian. The transformation of former grazing pasture into what is now Freemans Forest Nature Refuge is fitting testimony to his selfless generosity, and a permanent legacy of his passion. Recent plantings on the Hoare property (downstream of Freemans Forest and opposite Dennis Byrnes' property) are almost certainly inspired in part by the examples afforded by neighbours. Similarly, plantings on the Williams property further downstream reflect upstream gains over a period of decades, just as the efforts of Greening Australia and the Yungaburra Landcare Group continued the work started by David Leech and Geoff Tracey in and around Yungaburra township. And of course, the Burchills have just kept on planting!

Whilst there are many other benefits that accrue from re-planting creek banks, the purpose of the corridor was always to allow plants, animals and their genes to move more freely across the landscape and re-colonise areas of their former range, travelling through habitat that is functional and resilient. Whether the corridor facilitates this movement depends largely on time and chance, but for the present, Lake Barrine Road to the east and Peeramon Road to the west remain significant barriers to functionality. Features such as the actual road surfaces, their width, the size and angle of adjacent slopes and batters and their level of erosion, the size and shape of culverts beneath the road, weed-infested margins and traffic speeds, make these roads difficult and dangerous obstacles to wildlife movement. There are however an increasing number of sites in the Wet Tropics where traffic infrastructure is being modified to achieve better outcomes for nature conservation. The points where the corridor intercepts these roads now need to be carefully surveyed, and existing solutions adapted and developed to overcome the linear barrier effect.

Records show that TREAT, QPWS, landholders and other groups have planted over 107,000 trees to establish the Peterson Creek Corridor. Based on my recollections of old plantings on Peterson Creek tributaries and other adjacent properties, the actual number is probably closer to 120,000. This number of trees, and the effort taken to establish them, represents significant financial and community investment - at today's prices the trees alone would cost over $500,000. The actual area given over to re-planting is quite extensive, so the contributions of landholders (especially Ian Freeman) were vital and generous and need to be acknowledged. It is equally important to recognise the many individuals long passed who set the scene for what was to follow.

We do however need to acknowledge that much of the Wet Tropics landscape is highly fragmented and there are many kilometres of habitat in need of restoration. If our landscapes are to accommodate wildlife movement at meaningful scales, adaptive management projects such as the Peterson Creek Corridor need to be greatly expanded and completed more quickly, and this can only be achieved by being smarter and with governments committing to realistic funding. To me, taking 30 years to re-plant 4.5km reflects a gutsy persistent effort and deserves congratulations, but if we are to make a difference to the quality of water flowing into the Great Barrier Reef and the ability of wildlife to persist and cope with a changing climate, we simply have to do better.

Revegetation Mapping Tool

Bronwyn Robertson (Terrain)

A new interactive mapping tool to help plan the location of revegetation projects is being trialled for the Southern Atherton Tablelands. Produced by Terrain, in partnership with Central Queensland University (CQU), the mapping tool can be used by community groups, landholders, revegetation practitioners and investors to help make good decisions about where in the landscape, revegetation would provide a high biodiversity benefit. This tool was recently demonstrated and trialled at a workshop involving Tableland community groups and revegetation practitioners.

Landholders, community groups, government agencies and other organisations have been revegetating on the Tablelands for many decades now. While the plantings may have been done for a variety of reasons, many of them aimed to improve biodiversity outcomes. Practitioners need to continually refine revegetation planning and practice, based on new information and lived experiences, to achieve the highest possible biodiversity outcomes while ensuring efficiencies with limited time and resources. With new science emerging on the impact of climate change on plants, animals and ecological communities, finding the right sites for revegetation projects is critical to achieving the desired outcomes, now and into an uncertain future.

During a review of Terrain's Wet Tropics Plan (for People and Country), practitioners indicated that they wanted some objective guidance to be able to support and validate decisions about locations for revegetation that provided the highest possible biodiversity outcomes.

One of the key objectives of the Plan review was to integrate considerations of climate change and carbon sequestration into regional and local priorities. Since completing the Plan, Terrain has been working to develop innovative GIS-based decision support tools (DST), to help community decision-making but also taking climate change and carbon sequestration into account. This has included a DST for the Cassowary Coast area to prioritise sites for buy-back and/or enhanced protection (e.g. nature refuges). There are many challenges with developing such tools, and there were many lessons learned.

Last year, Terrain and CQU embarked on a refined approach to the development of GIS-based DSTs, and are trialling this on the Southern Atherton Tablelands. The strength of the approach is that it is:

In addition to the scientific and ecological principles underpinning the tool, the project aims to factor in community values and local experience and knowledge. TREAT members were active participants in a recent workshop aimed at capturing and then integrating local knowledge into the tool, and then testing out how well it can respond to a range of scenarios. The discussion was lively and the feedback was extremely valuable and constructive, and has led to some adjustments to the logic and structure of the tool.

An important element of the tool is that it does not MAKE decisions, but SUPPORTS decision-making by decision-makers (e.g. participants at the recent community workshop). The resulting product is a series of interactive maps which can provide guidance to groups or technicians planning to invest in revegetation in the Southern Atherton Tablelands. It can also provide the basis for arguing for a revegetation grant, or directing carbon offset investment. The interactive maps which will result from this process will be publicly available to support ongoing planning and decision-making, through the Wet Tropics Plan website (www.wettropicsplan.org.au ). It is due to be ready for testing by the workshop participants and technical panel in the last half of July. The team looks forward to constructive feedback!

The project is a joint initiative between Terrain and Central Queensland University, with funding support through the Australian Government's National Landcare Program.

A Woodland Revegetation Project

Rupert Russell

In Mount Molloy there is an area of about four hectares, part of a Local Government Purposes Reserve, for which the only management was burning once a year, sometimes two years in succession. I felt sorrow for the scattered remnant vegetation on the site so I gave the Rural Fires team an assurance that rather than see it burn I would keep the area under control by strategic mowing.

There have been no fires since the start of 2004. Once I had a sufficient area mowed to give assurance to the nearby school and homes, I decided that if I was going to keep mowing I would also try to grow plants along the edges of the mowed strips and within some of the mowed patches.

In a good year Molloy can get 1300 mm of rain, but we have had many unlucky years. The soil I deal with is in some places white and powdery above a stiff yellow clay. In other places it is stony above the yellow clay. Not encouraging. Most common of the remnant vegetation is Corymbia tesselaris, with scattered Melaleuca viridiflora and patches of Melaleuca monantha, occasional Eucalyptus leptophleba and a few ironbark, possibly E. crebra. Grevillea coriacea is a valued remnant, flowering over a long period, feeding honeyeaters and small parrots. I learned that Red-wing Parrots and Pale-headed Rosellas eat the ovaries of the flowers! Later come Red-tailed Black Cockatoos which crack open the capsules to get at the seed.

I started planting in 2004. I had to keep in mind that minimal water would always be a problem, so most of the plants I have tried are chosen from hard, rocky country where water is scarce. Consequently many of the species are dry-season deciduous, dropping their leaves in May-June, regaining them about October-November or even later, depending on what rain-storms are received. However, hard stony country is usually well drained, unlike the situation with heavy clay in the patch I describe.

Callitris intratropica, Cochlospermum gillivraei and Eucalyptus phoenicea were early efforts. The Callitris have been particularly rewarding, with several seedlings establishing from seed of the trees planted ten or so years earlier. E. phoenicea have grown and flowered well, a pleasant surprise because this species is usually seen on sandy country. A few seedlings have arisen from this species but all of them too close to the parent trees to flourish. Euroschinus falcata, Brachychiton albidus and Pouteria sericea have coped with the situation. Burdekin Plum, Pleiogynium timorense, has done okay.

I have tried to take advantage of the local topography, planting species with higher water needs near temporary creek lines; Ficus rubiginosa, F. platypodia, F. benjamina, and a few F. opposita. F. rubiginiosa is slow but steady, and has been producing fruit for avian fig eaters. F. platypodia makes small round fruit which are sought out by Mistletoebirds. F. drupacea is even slower but now getting a grip.

One of the successes has been Mueller's Damson, Terminalia muelleri. Once burning stopped a single T. muelleri popped up as a volunteer, the seed most likely deposited by a Great Bowerbird feeding from the nearest fruiting tree at least 200 metres away, grown in our yard. Observing this T. muelleri volunteer encouraged me to plant about twelve seedlings of this species, all of which have done well. T. muelleri fruits in just three or four years; the fruit are held across several months, providing repeated feeds for Bowerbirds, Figbirds, fruit bats and Red-wing Parrots which split the woody seed to get at the interior.

Another success has been Paperbark Mahogany, Lophostemon suaveolens. To collect seed of this tree, close vigilance is necessary as the species has a very short flowering period and holds its seeds for only a few weeks. However, the seed germinates well and the seedlings are hardy. This species can grow in flood-prone land sometimes inundated for several days, and yet is not uncommon on top of hard stony ridges. My efforts with it have been well rewarded.

Two of the Yellow Jacket Bloodwoods, Corymbia leichhardtii and C. peltata, have grown well and look very handsome, their yellow trunks contrasting with the majority of the plantings. The seed for these trees has come from sandy or granite country, so their success on dreadful clay has been very pleasing.

Lemon-scented Gum Corymbia citriodora, and the restricted Lemon-scented Ironbark Eucalyptus staigeriana, have both done quite well, but Cape York Red Gum, E. brassiana, has sulked. The rare Peppermint E. lockyeri, has been shaky, but the blue ironbarks, E. shirleyi and E. melanophloia, have persisted. Gympie Messmate (syn. Dead Finish) E. cloeziana, the seed collected from high on a granite ridge, is doing well on clay. Thankfully, plants are clearly more adaptable than animals. One of the sarsaparillas, Alphitonia excelsa has done well. The scanty flesh around the seed attracts Bowerbirds, Figbirds and Red-wing Parrots.

Of shrubs, Callistemon recurvis and an un-named Callistemon from the top of Mt. Mulligan have done well. Acacia leptoloba, A. fleckeri and A. conferta have all done well. A. fleckeri has put up several new plants from root suckers; this species and A. leptocarpa can both spread via root suckers, something I never knew until I started growing them. An excellent coloniser has been A. umbellata. I deliberately planted this species on bare ground --- the most horrid looking stony soil above clay. It has thrived, spread of its own accord, with seed that delights Red-wing Parrots. A. simsii and A. hemsleyi are both too short-lived to justify the effort. The beautiful A. johannis (named for John Clarkson) from the top of Mt. Mulligan has done reasonably well.

One of the blessings arising from excluding fire is that seedlings growing from bird-deposited seed are able to survive, and sometimes thrive. Alphitonia is a common volunteer. Euroschinus falcata pops up, and there is one healthy Canarium which has sprung up quite without help from me. Cockatoo Grass (Alloteropsis alata) and an Arundinella species are now more noticeable amongst the Themeda than in earlier years. Despite no fire or grazing for 14 years, the Themeda looks fine.

Bandicoots have been very little problem; I usually put four or five rocks close around any newly planted seedlings, which helps protect them. Agile wallabies though, have been a menace. They do not eat the seedlings, but once a plant is a metre or so high, a cranky wallaby will wreck it, ripping down branches, even smashing the main stem. To discourage the wallabies I place logs (cut from dead wattles) around each seedling. This represents uncomfortable footing for the wallabies, so they usually turn their attention to an unprotected volunteer.

I water all new seedlings, and try to provide water for at least the first year for most of the plantings. To do this I fill either 20 litre or 10 litre drums which are wheeled along in a wheelbarrow. The lid of each drum has a narrow hole, about match-thick in diameter. At the opposite side I drill a hole about the diameter of a drinking straw. By tipping a full 20 litre drum on its side, with the narrow hole near the seedling, water can take as long as an hour to trickle out, providing a good soaking. This system has worked well for many years.

One regrettable happening is that the big termite mounds built by a Nasutitermes species are falling apart. Conical Amitermes mounds and low-rise Drepanotermes mounds are doing fine, but the lovely big mounds are crumbling. I have no idea why this is happening. I hope it is not because burning has stopped, but I do not intend to try reversing the situation by resuming burns.

The land is subject to Mareeba Shire Council. One must hope that they will allow the small project to continue. About 500 plants of at least 70 species in 35 genera have been planted. Another ten years free from fire and no change in land use, should see quite a vigorous dry-country arboretum on this patch of land.

Field Day at Seamark Road

Dinah Hansman

TREAT members who visited Cloudland Nature Refuge at Seamark Road on Saturday 16 June will remember an afternoon of beautiful winter sunshine and crimson rosellas, as well as the interesting and inspiring talk and walk with Kylie Freebody, Dave Hudson and his partner Robyn Land.

Dave and Robyn purchased Cloudland in 2005. It is a rainforest property that has been logged and a central area cleared for pasture - mostly Brachiaria grass, colonised by lantana and tobacco bush (Solanum mauritianum).

After the expense and hard work of planting around 14,000 trees, Dave decided it was time to explore assisted natural regeneration, and in 2011 made his property available for the Kickstart Trials, a research project designed to investigate less intensive and cheaper modes of revegetation.

Kylie was part of the research team and gave us a detailed account of the design and set-up of experimental plots and measurements. Dave and Kylie acknowledged the rigour in the experimental design by Prof. Carla Catterall of Griffith University, and the measurements and observations made by other researchers. The essence of the approach is to work with what is, relying on observation, knowledge and flexibility to adjust management regimes to work with succession. For example, the weedy tobacco bush was used to promote regeneration as it attracts seed-dispersing birds such as currawongs. Seeds brought in by birds germinate underneath and a nucleus of rainforest seedlings such as Alphitonia and Bleeding Heart develops. Furthermore, tobacco bush suppresses grass growth. There was flexibility in decision-making around weed control. Plots were sprayed 3 or 4 times with glyphosate in the first year and then once or twice a year with Verdict (to kill grass) as necessary. Herbicide use on herbaceous weeds such as blue-top (Ageratum) and thick-head (Crassocephalum) was restrained after the initial 18 months because these weeds suppressed grass regrowth and helped 'hide' seedlings from predation by pademelons. Also, herbaceous weeds die back at times.

Kylie described the painstaking measurements she made over six years, recording every seedling recruited in strips 2m wide in each plot. Around 18,000 seedlings were measured - identifying more than 70 species from 40 families. We could appreciate the effort involved in climbing up the steep slope, and crawling along on hands and knees in a tangle of vegetation. The results clearly showed the importance of paddock trees or artificial perches in fostering regeneration. Working with this knowledge, in a new project funded by TKMG (Tree-Kangaroo and Mammal Group), Dave is creating 'tree islands' with 5 rows of 5 rainforest seedlings planted in the grass paddocks. As these islands develop they will be sprayed with Verdict if and when needed.

Another project development has been to divide up the two 80m x 80m plots on Cloudland into 64 sub-plots. These original kickstart research plots will be maintained for future researchers to look at what happens over time. Where there has not been much recruitment (areas too far from a bird perch for example), 16 of these sub-plots have been planted with species that would not be brought in by birds. These plantings were funded by a Nature Refuge Landholder grant.

Although 'Kickstart' techniques are clearly cheaper and easier for steep slopes such as at Cloudland, research needs to continue so that we can compare outcomes in the longer term, say 25 years. Scientific studies and publication are essential to give credibility to more flexible, nuanced revegetation techniques. Without this, it may be harder to get funding from governments that want quick and easily interpreted results.

Help us see Tropical Fungi

Dr Sapphire McMullan-Fisher

We were delighted by the interest and enthusiasm of the TREAT volunteers who attended the Fungi Workshop in March 2018. For people who now notice fungi, perhaps you want to share images of what you see, using our iNaturalist project, Australian Fungi of the Tropics and Subtropics. https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/australian-fungi-of-the-tropics-subtropics .

We have seven members who have been sharing their observations. As at the end of May, we have more than 250 observations of 73 fungi. Most of these have only been shared once. So far the most common species is the Trooping Crumble Cap (Coprinellus disseminatus), which has been recorded 7 times on the Tablelands. This is a recognisable species and all of these records have reached 'Research Grade' (identification confirmed by more than 2/3 of identifiers). This data will be collected by the Atlas of Living Australia and so is contributing to understanding our biodiversity.

In the long term as we begin to get names on collections of local fungi, we hope we will be able to go back and name some of the species we can't yet recognise.

Trooping Crumble Cap (Coprinellus disseminatus) is a recognisable mushroom usually found in numbers on wood. It starts out pale and becomes grey with age as its black spores develop. (R van Raders)

Nursery News

Peter Snodgrass

As invigorating and challenging as it was to assist the Lake Eacham Management Unit for 11 weeks, it is nice to be back at the nursery amongst the smiling faces of TREAT volunteers and with a few new welcome members.

It has been a very busy time for all, and for the first time in many years, I missed a TREAT tree planting on Peterson Creek and the opportunity to catch up with some of the wider tree planting community. But of course it all looks fantastic as usual, and I hope all those who have their individual projects are having similar success.

Unfortunately Matthew Kempe's temporary appointment comes to an end on the 13th July, but I would like to thank him for his efforts as part of the Restoration Services team, assisting Simon Brown back filling in my absence. They have done a great job maintaining Massey Creek, and clearing back the ever encroaching vegetation around the nursery to maintain sunlight access as well as preparing for a little extension and the tanks for the upgrade of water supply occurring in the not too distant future. Hopefully an opportunity will arise for Matt to join the QPWS team in a more permanent capacity, but either way we wish him all the best for the future.
