Land and Vegetation Management

In recent times, we have become increasingly involved with land and vegetation management. From 1998 until 2003 LMRS was a principal contractor for the management of roadsides under the Tasmanian Southern Long-term Road Maintenance Contract 662 for CSR Emoleum. The contract covered over 1200 kms (approx. 1000 ha of roadsides) of the state road network and National Highway with LMRS managing;

  • Mowing implementation
  • Weed management and control,
  • Landscape maintenance and implementation,
  • Rare flora and fauna site management,
  • Archaeological site management,
  • General vegetation control and
  • Roadside tree and shrub assessment and maintenance.

In addition, LMRS also had an environmental management role in Contract 662 for CSR Emoleum including the development and implementation of;

  • Roadside management prescriptions,
  • Weed control indices,
  • Landscape condition audits,
  • Roadside tree condition audits,
  • Intervention level revision,
  • Mowing table revision and
  • Erosion, sediment control and rehabilitation.

We have recently developed and implemented similar roadside management procedures and prescriptions for CSR Emoleum contracts in Western Australia. Two LMRS employees worked in WA in order to manage 3700 km of roadsides, in South Perth Metropolitan (400 km) and Geraldton (3300 km). LMRS is also involved with the provision of technical advice on vegetation maintenance and management for electricity distribution systems to MMA, throughout Australia. LMRS was also responsible for vegetation management for the ‘Provision of Vegetation Management Services’ through MMA’s contract with Aurora Energy. The six year project involved the provision of long term vegetation management strategies for the 25,000km Aurora electricity distribution network throughout Tasmania. The project required the development of a number of vegetation management systems and strategies including:

  • A Vegetation Management Information System,
  • A Vegetation Management Index and
  • A Vegetation Condition Survey.

These systems are aimed at a transition from a ‘Schedule of Rates Contract’ to a ‘Performance Based Contract’.
