River Corridor Concept Plan
The Managing Unwanted Vegetation in Southland Rivers - Concept Plan presents a new approach to managing vegetation in our river corridors. The aim of the plan is to reduce the need for herbicide use and to move to more sustainable methods of managing the land.
The alternatives being considered are various types of livestock grazing, realignment of current fenced boundaries, cropping, commercial and carbon forestry, native biodiversity restoration and development projects/reserves, increased public access and facilities for recreation and tourism, greater use of biological control to suppress key woody weeds, etc.
