This Boxwood Hills property was purchased by Carbon Neutral for a permanent land-use change from cropping/grazing to re-vegetation for carbon sequestration. Boxwood Hills is located directly adjacent to two large areas of high conservation value bushland: Corackerup Nature Reserve to the west, and a very large extent of unallocated Crown Land buffering Corackerup Creek to the east. Its re-vegetation means a significant increase in ecological connectivity between these remnant bushland areas, and contributes to the Gondwana Link corridor initiative. In addition, the property links to another re-vegetated site called Nowanup in the north, which is currently used by members of the local Noongar aboriginal community for social and educational projects.
Restoration Design and Implementation
Threshold Environmental was contracted for an ecological restoration project of 91.4 ha on the property in 2011. The restoration design encompassed four different native vegetation systems, including a system for sandalwood production. The restoration plan was implemented in July and August 2011.
