Before & After: Brisbane Creek Repair Works

This week’s Before & After is more of a ‘Before’, ‘During’ and “After’ of the repair works project we did on the banks of the Brisbane Creek over a 12 month period.

Starting in May of 2021 a re-profile was done of the creek bank, which required removal of weed trees such as Cinnamomum camphora, more commonly known as Camphor Laurel.

Vegetation was then reinstated with over 11,000 native trees, shrubs and ground covers and then the site was maintained by our teams over 12 months.

As you will see by the progress in the slideshow, all that rain and sunshine has definitely pushed this project along and we can’t wait for these plants to meet full maturity.

Check out Brooke’s previous Weed of the Week article for more information on the devastating affects Camphor laurel trees (Cinnamomum camphora) can have on our native areas.

Thanks to our senior project manager Greg for this story.
