This subject explores the issues and problems of revegetation of private and public rural lands using suitable native trees, shrubs and understory species, and provides the technical support necessary to design and implement local revegetation plans. Students are required to achieve learning outcomes relevant to each stage of the revegetation process, viz, site assessment, species selection, project planning and design, evaluation of alternate establishment strategies, and project management and maintenance. Assessment is based on a series of written milestone reports for a revegetation project designed by the student and a review of published literature on the different approaches to revegetation.
