Great Dividing Range Carbon Project

Carbon Landscapes has secured large areas of private forestry plantations across the Victoria’s section of the Great Dividing Range. Additional biodiverse habitat plantings have complimented these plantations to create over 500 hectares of carbon offsets across Victoria

Background

The Great Dividing Range stretches 3600 kilometres from the tropical rainforests of Cape York in Queensland, through the Mountain Alps of New South Wales and ending at the woodlands of the Grampians in Western Victoria. Within this biodiverse-rich natural wildlife corridor, many of Australia’s fauna can be found, many of which rely on the Range’s intactness and connectivity to survive.

The Great Dividing Range Carbon Sink Project aims to restore habitats that have previously been cleared. The Project aims to focus on threatened species such as the Yellow-bellied GliderMasked Owl and Southern Brown Bandicoot.

Great Dividing Range Carbon Project Details

Carbon Landscapes is working in partnership with Heartwood Plantations to restore over 500 hectares of native forest within the Great Dividing Range. Heartwood Plantations manages over 40 plantation sites predominantly located in Gippsland. Together we are targeting land that is unviable for forestry (i.e. rivers and other waterways) and restoring these areas with indigenous native revegetation.
