From a long experience working in the natural environment Rural Design Limited know that mammalian pests pose a serious issue to the health and establishment of naturally existing and newly planted native flora as well as native fauna.
Rats, rabbits, possums and livestock pose a large threat to successful restoration work. Eradication/control are generally the landowner’s responsibility and it may be necessary to have a pest control program to achieve eventual canopy closure, high plant survival rates and maintenance of existing areas of native forest.
One year of intensive control undertaken by Rural Design Limited will help reduce local pest numbers. Short term monitoring and maintenance can determine the course of future requirements.
