Planting Guides

These Planting Guides provide assistance for landholders with revegetating the riparian zone of the waterway on their property. They list species that are appropriate to plant at the top of the bank, on the slope of the bank and at the toe of the bank (water edge).

The Guides are written for specific rivers and, in some cases for specific sections of those rivers in the East Gippsland region.

The Guides also contain information on site preparation, planting methods and weed control.
