Biodiversity Conservation TrustRevegetation plan templateIntroductionWho is this template for?This best practice revegetation plan template is to assist Accredited Assessors in implementingBiodiversity Assessment Method (BAM) requirements for native vegetation and habitat management, andaugmentation activities as they relate to ‘13.3.3 - Active restoration management actions’ of the BAM. Itwill however also be useful as a decision tool for anyone planning supplementary planting or revegetationactivities on public and private land across NSW.Completion of the revegetation plan template will be a requirement for any biodiversity stewardshipagreement (BSA) application if supplementary planting is proposed for more than 100ha, and where anassessment of site constraints deem the proposal as high risk.The Biodiversity Conservation Trust (BCT) will reserve the right to require the template be used forproposals less than 100ha and where an assessment of site constraints deem the proposal as high risk,or requiring further supporting evidence.The Accredited Assessor will have collated information in accordance with Appendix 2 of the BAMOperational Manual Stage 3. This information will provide detailed guidance on the likely success of theproposed supplementary planting, identified constraints and areas of risk, and through doing so, met theobligations outlined in BAM section 13.3.3 - Active restoration management actions.This best practice revegetation plan template is a supporting document to the BCT’s Restoring NativeVegetation Guidelines for assisted regeneration and revegetation.Guideline StructureThis document has two sections:Section 1 is supporting information and instructions to assist complete the template.Section 2 is the best practice revegetation plan template that provides tables and fields for theAccredited Assessor to complete in order to demonstrate consideration of all factors relating to theeffectiveness and practicality of supplementary planting in the relevant management zone(s).Glossary of AcronymsAPZs – Asset Protection ZonesARMA - Active restoration management actionsBAM – Biodiversity Assessment MethodBAM-C - Biodiversity Assessment Method Credit CalculatorBCT – NSW Biodiversity Conservation TrustBSA - Biodiversity stewardship agreementBSSAR - Biodiversity Stewardship Site Assessment ReportPCT - Plant Community TypeSPA – Seed Production AreaSMART – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-boundVI – Vegetation Integrity scoreWHS – Work Health and Safety2

Biodiversity Conservation TrustRevegetation plan templateRevegetation plan template guidanceThis section includes supporting information to assist in completing the template. Particular attentionshould be given to completion of fields requiring risk identification and defensible explanations ofmitigation strategies and subsequent changes to risk ratings.As outlined in the BAM and the Stage 3 BAM Operational Manual, evidence required for thewhole site includes: The BSSAR must provide evidence of the proponent’s capability to implement the activerestoration management actions set out in the management plan. The BSSAR must:a) set out the vegetation attributes and habitat that is subject to the restoration managementactions, andb) identify any topographical, biophysical, financial, knowledge, resource, methodological orother constraint that is likely to affect reaching the restoration target value for each attribute orthreatened flora species, andc) demonstrate how each constraint has been addressed in the management plan, includingproviding evidence of the capability of the proponent to implement the action. The assessor is required to record the duration and timing of additional managementactions in the BSSAR. The BSSAR must specify the expected limitations and constraints of the proposed methodand availability of appropriate resources and material proposed to be used for active restoration.The headings in this section align with the section headings in the template and should be used toguide completion of the template.3

Biodiversity Conservation TrustRevegetation plan templateCapacity to deliver worksThis section outlines of skills and capacity in the region where work is proposed and reduceslikelihood of work being delayed or under-delivered through an unforeseen lack of locally experiencedcontractors. Given that any NVR practitioner engaged to provide technical guidance duringcompletion of the template will not necessarily be the one undertaking the on-ground works, thissection seeks to document the availability of suitable qualified and experienced practitioners who areable to service the region where the BSA is proposed. Documentation here seeks to also understandif it is intended that the work be undertaken with the landholder’s own personnel and equipment or bysuitably qualified and experienced restoration practitioners.ContentdescriptionEvidence required for the whole site.ProjectmanagerLandholder/lead contractor previous experience delivering restorationprojects.PersonnelProposed delivery team CVs and documentation of their availability toundertake project tasks around other work/projects they are committed to.EquipmentMachinery and equipment necessary for proposed works owned oravailable.Contractorsand partnersDocumentation of skills, experience and capacity to implement proposedworks.MonitoringSelection of revegetation methods and species should be evidence-based, and support generation ofthe predicted gains where revegetation is successful. It is anticipated that ecological monitoring byBCT or to BCT guidelines as scheduled through the BSA Management Plan will measure progresstowards predicted gains and be used to validate credit generation. Monitoring requirements for thesite must be guided by the BCT Ecological Monitoring Module.The chart in the ‘Monitoring’ section of the template is to be used as a guide and should be updated into indicate specific months for initial planting and periodic monitoring.In the case of non-tubestock supplementary planting methods, there is some value in makingallowances for unscheduled monitoring events that may occur after catalyst events that initiategermination (e.g. first rainfall of the year). For all supplementary planting techniques, monitoringshould be undertaken, once it is safe to do so, immediately after any event that is unforeseen but hasa significant impact on a management zone (e.g. fire or flooding).10

Biodiversity Conservation TrustRevegetation plan templateWorks scheduleThe chart in the ‘Works schedule’ section of the template is a guide based on revegetation activitiesoccurring in the temperate zones of NSW with an assumption of ongoing, reliable rainfall patterns. Itwill require adaptation based on local climatic conditions.Activities that relate to the entire site, such as seed collection, can be included in the chart as acollective action across the five-year period. However, actions that are individualised based onmanagement zone requirements, such as preparation, installation and maintenance, need to be splitinto task rows within the chart for each specific method and task outlined in the ‘Outline seed andplant supply requirements’ section of the template.Risk analysis summary tableRisk in the project should be addressed against likelihood and consequence using a similar approachto WHS risk assessment. The purpose of this section is to identify all known material risks apparentthrough supplementary planting planning, data collection and works in order to reduce uncertaintyaround the proposed active restoration in delivering predicted gains. All risks should be listed in thetable in the template with reference to the risk matrix and guidance tables on the following page.Risks that remain high after mitigation/control actions have been put in place should be considered assignificant limiting factors to successful delivery of predicted gains through the proposedsupplementary planting activities. This can be dealt with through reassessing the appropriateness ofthe proposed activity or be recommended for a staged release of ecosystem credits contingent on therisk being managed and the activity delivering the predicted outcome.11

Biodiversity Conservation TrustRevegetation plan templateBudgetThe project budget is derived from the activities identified in the ‘Outline seed and plant supplyrequirements’ and ‘Revegetation management’ sections of the template. Planning, management,monitoring and seed services should be budgeted for at a whole of BSA level. Other activities relatedto specific management zones (site preparation, revegetation, maintenance) should be itemised byactivity or task per management zone and be derived through accurate assessment of time andresources required to complete the outcome successfully.Applicants are required to budget for an operational contingency aligned with the risk profile of theproposed methods. Applicants are also encouraged to consider allowances for adaptive managementin order to be able to respond to results from monitoring or unexpected events such as fires andfloods. These budget items will be largely determined by the assessed risk in the project and will flowthrough to the Total Fund Deposit.The budget headings in the template are indicative and high level. Detail is expected underneath eachheading that fully explains the costs and associated activities.13
