The consultancy provides for a whole of physical site assessment, visual assessment and strategic site spatial plan that leverages the sites assets within the context of surrounding local and regional landscape. The property is dominated by closed forest of Camphor Laurel, Cinnamomum camphora. Along intermittent water courses rainforest tree species and rainforest understory species are present. It is proposed to seal the edge to closed forest areas and undertake minimal landforming. The design weaves concepts of the picturesque garden and the restoration of natural systems (here Rainforest). Two types of cabinet timber resources are proposed to be established within a Silviculture framework for the property.
The strategic plan relies on an understanding of natural systems to design landforming interventions that are sustainable and seek outcomes that increase the ecological and commercial value of the property. The plan is consistent with the ecological and cultural narratives of the property and the region.
