Site 4; 60 ha.

Site 4, Hubbard. 60 ha. Theme 1, revegetation (25 ha); Theme 2, vegetation rehabilitation, no stock grazing (35 ha).

The Hubbard sites are remnant woodland and open pasture on steep hills and gullies. Large cleared patches require rehabilitation. The site is part of a ‘corridor’ that links Mt. Disappointment State Forest to the King Parrot Creek. Predominant species: Long-leaf Box, Broad-leaf Peppermint, Blackwood, Bracken, with some Silver Wattle and Common Cassinia, even Mint Bush near State Forest. Good native grass content, and native ground cover among bush remnants. The site perimeter is partly fenced, but requires ‘internal’ fencing to manage stock access.hubbard-4-map1
