Despite the poor rain last wet season, we have another big schedule of community plantings for this wet season. All except one (Ault Rd) are on properties where previous community plantings have been held. Four are at Cutler Rd, Lake Eacham, two at Rock Rd, Upper Barron, two at Pressley Rd, Lake Barrine, one at Massey Creek, Ravenshoe, one at Hillcrest Rd, Jaggan, and one at Ault Rd, Topaz. If the weather is kind, a total of approximately 22,000 trees will be planted.
RN 2 Cutler Rd, Lake Eacham
The first community planting is a very small planting of 150 trees, in memory of Ian Freeman who died last year and did so much on his property to make the connection between the Peterson Creek Wildlife Corridor and the National Park at Lake Eacham. South Endeavour Trust (SET) now owns his property and it is hoped that soon the revegetated areas will form part of 'Freeman Forest Nature Refuge'.
TREAT had funding from Everyone's Environment Grant Round 3 for the planting there last year, and part of that grant required a field day to be held. This will take place after the planting. It is a great opportunity to look at the fantastic results that have been achieved with revegetation here since 2011.
The second planting will be an infill of the 2016 planting which suffered substantial losses due to extreme temperatures in January and February.
The last two plantings will complete the revegetation of the area adjacent to last year's planting. They will form part of a Feasibility Study into the cost/benefits of participating in the carbon market and its potential as a possible source of ongoing funding to support further revegetation activities. The trees for these plantings will come from both QPWS and Tablelands Regional Council (TRC).
Cutler Road is off Lake Barrine Road between the Gillies Highway and Malanda. Look for the TREAT signs.
Rock Rd, Upper Barron
The first of these plantings is on the property at the far end of Rock Road. TREAT helped plant trees here in 2011 and 2013 when it was owned by Carolyn and Philip Emms. South Endeavour Trust (SET) now owns the property and is extending the work done by the Emms. This community planting will be on a reasonably flat area and site preparation is being done by Geoff Onus of NQ Land Management Services (NQLMS). Access can be problem if the weather is too wet, so check for possible cancellation. The trees will come from NQLMS and TRC.
The second planting is on the property formerly owned by John Hatton (now owned by SET), where the after-planting barbecues have been held in recent years. This planting will be on the eastern slope below the shed and site preparation is being done by Mark McCaffrey. The trees will come from QPWS as part of their agreement with the Tree-Kangaroo and Mammal Group (TKMG).
SET owns all 3 of the eastern properties on Rock Road. They were purchased with the objective of creating a substantial corridor to link the large area of private forest at Upper Barron with the Herberton Range National Park. These two plantings form part of that plan. See the Letter to the Editor from Tim Hughes of SET.
Rock Road is at the junction of McKell Road and Kenny Road. Meet about 100m along Rock Road where parking is possible on the side of the road.
RN 69 Pressley Rd, Lake Barrine
The October - December 2016 TREAT NEWS had an article by Carolyn Emms about Rainforest Reserves Australia (RRA) and the slow release Cassowary Centre being established on their two Lake Barrine properties with RRA's help. Volunteers at the 2016 planting on Cedarvale would have seen a long fenceline. This encloses the Tablelands Cassowary Facility and the two plantings this year will be within this facility.
The first planting will actually be on the Barrine Park property, but will be accessed through Cedarvale. Phil Emms will ferry volunteers from Cedarvale to the site. The planting area is where TREAT and School for Field Studies (SFS) helped plant trees in 2011 at the edge of a remnant area with many wattles. This planting will be under and around the wattles, now cleared of tobacco, guava and other weeds. The remnant area connects to Donaghy's Corridor on Toohey Creek.
The second planting will be on Cedarvale and will be planting up the grass strips left in the 2015 planting done by Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA), TREAT and SFS. This will speed up canopy closure of the area.
Holes will be dug, trees laid out (with fertiliser) and mulch spread nearby, by CVA. The trees will come from the Emms' nursery.
Pressley Road is off the Gillies Highway near Lake Barrine. Look for the TREAT signs.
Massey Creek, Ravenshoe
This planting continues the QPWS project in Tully Gorge National Park to widen a section of the forest corridor from the coast to the highlands. It is adjacent to last year's planting, which has done very well.
The site is close to Massey Creek on the Old Palmerston Highway towards Ravenshoe. Follow the TREAT signs at the wind farm on the Kennedy Highway.
RN 353 Hillcrest Rd, Jaggan
TREAT has assisted with plantings on this property in 2008, 2009 and 2011. It was managed back then by Mike and Robin Carter, and now the owner, Lindsay Jorgensen, is living on the property and assisting with the revegetation. He has installed tanks to water the trees and will be digging holes for this planting which is on the side of one of the hills at the northern end of the property. To cope with possible erosion problems, the trees will be planted in bands with large grass strips left between them. In future years, other areas on these hills will be planted to revegetate a former grazing area. Trees for this planting will be mainly from TRC.
Hillcrest Road runs from Malanda to Jaggan and the property is near the Jaggan end. Hillcrest Road is off Clarke's Track at Jaggan. Look for the TREAT signs at Jaggan.
RN 177 Ault Rd, Topaz
Reinhold and Petra bought this property in 2004 and have been planting trees on it for the last ten years. They have set up their own nursery and grow trees from seed sourced on the property. This year TREAT has offered to help them plant a larger number of trees from their nursery, about 3000. In 2015 and 2016 they planted a strip next to some forest adjoining Ault Road and this planting will increase that area.
Ault Road is off Old Boonjie Road which is off Topaz Road close to its junction with Glen Allyn Road. Look for the TREAT signs.
A barbecue will be provided by TREAT after all the plantings, and after the field day on 28th January. This task is now organised by two teams, the 'A Team' and the 'Dream Team' and they generally alternate at the plantings.
Inside this issue
Newsletter by Email
We had an article in the previous newsletter seeking sponsorship help for continuing with the present format of the newsletter. There were a couple of responses offering financial help which were much appreciated. However for continued publishing as is, we would need much more finance. The TREAT committee has therefore decided to move with the times and produce an electronic copy of the April newsletter for emailing to members.
We would like as many members as possible to receive the newsletter by email, thereby reducing postage costs significantly. Not all members have email and a printed version will be posted to these members to keep them informed. We are hoping to reduce printing costs as well as postage costs, so the printed version may change from the present format.
All members will receive a renewal form with this newsletter, requesting an email address for sending future copies of the newsletter. Many members have already given us their email address but some of these may need updating. Rather than posting the renewal form back to us, members may prefer to simply email our secretary, Doug Burchill, whose email is Doug Burchill. This has an advantage in that some handwriting on returned forms can be difficult to decipher.
The file size of emailed newsletters will be small enough to be downloaded easily.
Ecological Furniture - Making the House a Home
Anyone who has moved into an empty house knows it's pretty lame without a table, chairs, beds, the NBN, knick-knacks and all the other essential parts of our habitat. It's why we spend so much time and energy acquiring the essentials and placing them where we need them. To most fauna, a re-planted site is the same as the empty house - the basics are there but the things that really constitute functional habitat are conspicuously absent. Restoring forest habitats is more than just planting trees - it means thinking about how we actually create homes for fauna.
In a typical rainforest, a hollow log on the ground is a valuable resource offering wildlife an essential place to nest, rest, escape or feed. Depending on its size, the number of species that utilise the log as a habitat resource, from wood-boring beetles to striped possums, is very large indeed and the presence of that log determines which animals can potentially 'set up house'. In reality though, the log probably took centuries to grow then fall, and many years before it reached a state of decomposition where it provides maximum value to the largest number of species. Nature, through that inevitable process of disturbance, initiates and perpetuates this long process.
If your aim is to encourage wildlife colonisation of your planting site then that process can be shortened considerably by finding unused logs and placing them across the site. One log on the ground will provide potential habitat for a range of life forms. Two logs on the ground with another on top then creates three times the amount of habitat, because there are spaces of different shapes and sizes available. Logs and log piles do not need to be long or large to be valuable - most small mammals for instance prefer small cavities. If your aim is to restore riparian forest habitat, then consider also the needs of water dragons and turtles who love nothing more than basking on a semi-submerged log next to the water's edge, or fish which enjoy the safety and feeding opportunities offered by such in-stream habitat.
Rocks are an even longer-lasting habitat resource. One rock on the ground, like one log, is better than nothing. A pile of rocks is a different story. When you construct habitat using rocks you can create spaces of varying sizes which allow many species to utilise the resource. Lizards, skinks and other reptiles, frogs, small and large mammals will all use rock piles and many rely on the presence of such features for their habitat needs.
Imagine then, the possibilities that arise from a combination of log and rock piles. As your planting develops, these features become merged into their surrounds, with leaf litter, twigs and branches gradually adding additional complexity. Seeds of vines, herbs and trees will over time germinate amongst the features adding to their value to wildlife. Place these features before you begin planting, placing them not too close to the edge of your planting, but more in the middle where future habitat will be of better quality.
Travelling around the landscape I am often struck by the way we make piles of logs and burn them, and bulldoze piles of rocks and unconsciously let them become colonised by weeds. These 'piles' represent the objects which wildlife requires in order to make homes in the houses we create, and recycling them into re-planting sites should be an important part of your restoration plantings. As Aristotle (384-322BC) remarked, 'Nature abhors a vacuum'. If you create both house and home, wildlife will thank you for it - and move in.

Letter to the Editor - 24/10/16
Dear TREAT members and volunteers,
On behalf of all of my colleagues at South Endeavour Trust, I would like to express our profound thanks for the enormous contribution that TREAT is making towards the Rock Road corridor at Upper Baron.
With three planting days there earlier this year we have now completed the planting out of the essential part of the Lemuroid Leap section of the corridor. I stood up on the high point of the block the other weekend and looked out over the 8 hectares that has been planted and could scarcely believe that so much has been accomplished in just three years. It is just so inspiring to see a forest emerging from what was pasture just a few years ago.
As I have said at a couple of TREAT planting days, South Endeavour would not have made the huge financial investment we have in buying these properties and supporting the revegetation effort were it not for the commitment and enthusiasm of TREAT. So thank you all again.
We are incredibly excited that we are now moving to complete the project by planting out another 8.6 hectares in the Dirrans End section of the corridor. This section is immediately adjacent to the Herberton Range part of the World Heritage Area and the site has glorious views up to the Range and off towards Bartle Frere and Bellenden Kerr. And it is nowhere near as steep a site as that at Lemuroid Leap! Geoff Onus and his crew planted out the steepest 1.6 hectares of this site earlier this year and we are committed to planting out 3.5 hectares in each of the next two years. This will effectively be the end of the critical planting in the Rock Road corridor.
We very much hope that TREAT will continue to support these efforts and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible as we move to complete this wonderful community project.
Thank you all so much
Director, South Endeavour Trust
Is Lizzie Back?
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service
Most gardeners would be familiar with Impatiens walleriana. Commonly known as garden balsam, busy lizzie or simply, impatiens, this colourful, easy to grow, short-lived perennial, native to eastern Africa is grown in warm climates around the world. It is available as double and single flowering cultivars in colours ranging from white, pink and red to orange, lilac and purple. The capsules, which contain hundreds of small seeds, “explode” when ripe, scattering seeds some distance from the parent plant. As a result, the plant can become a minor weed when it spreads to parts of the garden where it is not wanted.
In parts of Australia, busy lizzies have spread to natural bushland, usually as a result of people dumping garden refuse or moving contaminated soil. Once introduced in this manner, plants will spread further by broken stem fragments and seed. This appears to have happened in two areas in coastal and near coastal parts of Queensland. On the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland, between Yungaburra and Ravenshoe, and in South East Queensland, between Buderim and Springbrook, and on several Moreton Bay islands, busy lizzies are commonly found along drains and watercourses or on rainforest margins. When compared to many environmental weeds, the impacts of busy lizzies are usually fairly minor however, when they grow in places like cracks in rock pavements along rainforest streams, they can displace native species that can only grow in these restricted situations.
After Severe Tropical Cyclone Larry struck Far North Queensland in March 2006, many gardeners on the Atherton Tablelands started to report that busy lizzies seemed to be disappearing from their gardens. Naturalised populations also seemed to be vanishing. Plants have been impossible to find until quite recently. A search of the Queensland Herbarium collection database (HERBRECS) in March 2016 showed specimens of naturalised I. walleriana were regularly added to the collection between 1999 and 2006. None have been added since 2007. Where had Lizzie gone?
In 2003, the disease, impatiens downy mildew, was identified on both seed- and cutting-raised I. walleriana in various locations around the United Kingdom. This was the first record of the disease, caused by the fungus-like organism Plasmopara obducens, in the UK. The exact origin of the disease could not be determined, but it is thought it might have gained entry in propagating material from mainland Europe. Authorities suspect it may have been introduced before 2003 and remained undetected whilst asymptomatic, infected plants were spread around the country. All cultivars of I. walleriana and hybrids with this species are susceptible to the disease. Impatiens balsamina, another species cultivated in Australia, is also highly susceptible although the New Guinea species, I. hawkeri, and the commonly cultivated hybrids with this species as one of the parents, are highly resistant. Impatiens x hawkeri hybrids do not produce viable seeds so don't become weedy.
In 2004, impatiens downy mildew was found in 3 states in the USA. By 2013 it had spread to 38 states. In October 2006, diseased plants from a commercial nursery near Melbourne were shown to be infected with the disease. Plasmopara obducens had spread to Australia. Surveys at the time found diseased plants in South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland and it was subsequently found in Western Australia. It would appear that, as was thought to have occurred in the UK, the disease had been present in Australia for some time before its discovery. Could this explain Lizzie's sudden disappearance?
Like many downy mildew diseases, impatiens downy mildew can remain latent for varying periods of time after infection. Symptoms may only appear when conditions favour sporulation. The first symptoms are leaves turning a paler green than normal with a fine white fungal growth developing on the lower leaf surfaces. The affected leaves turn yellow and are shed or decay rapidly. Plants become stunted and reduced to bare branches with a tuft of yellow leaves and flower buds at the tip. Flowers are either reduced in number or absent. Severely affected plants will eventually die.
Under conditions of high humidity, spore-bearing structures are produced on the underside of the leaves. Spores are spread from plant to plant by water splash and over longer distances by wind. Just before the death of the host tissues, the pathogen may produce thick-walled resting spores. These resting spores can survive in decaying host tissue and soil for extended periods of time.
Recently, a few gardeners on the Atherton Tablelands have noticed occasional plants of I. walleriana appearing in places from which they had been absent for almost 10 years. Does this mean Lizzie is back? What could explain the comeback?
- Could a few individuals of I. walleriana be resistant to impatiens downy mildew and their progeny are only just becoming noticeable?
- Could the soil seed bank of impatiens have outlived the disease's soil spore bank?
- Could the drier than normal wet season experienced on the Atherton Tablelands this year have been unsuitable for development of the disease?
Time will tell. Lizzie might be back, but for how long, we must wait to see.
More details on impatiens downy mildew in Australia can be found at the following web site: Impatiens downy mildew Fact Sheet.
While seed collections have been a bit on the low side for the last couple of months, the situation is gradually improving with the onset of the wet season. From personal observations, many plants that flowered well failed to set or retain much fruit due to high temperatures and dry conditions during this period, providing limited resources for wildlife (and us). What fruit did persist often did not make it through to maturity as hungry wildlife competed for these limited spoils. I think the large numbers of cockatoos that were around in the earlier part of last year must have been having a particularly hard time as once they were onto a food source, even before maturity, there was nothing left to collect.
Thanks again to School for Field Studies students for their assistance in the nursery during October. Students were each able to visit the nursery twice during their semester and I am sure their time working with TREAT was a valuable experience.
On the 5th November the nursery held its annual Plant Identification and Propagation workshop with Allan Gillanders enthusing participants with his abundant knowledge and plant identification skills, and myself providing scintillating insight into the mysteries of propagation. Fruits were in short supply though we did manage to beat the cockatoos to enough variety to make the morning an enjoyable and hopefully educational event. Many thanks also to Barbara Lanskey, Maria Gillanders and Rosemarie Pilmer for their assistance and for providing the wonderful morning tea which was greatly appreciated by the participants.
A successful tree planting workshop was held on Saturday 19th November at Ian Freeman's property. Peter Snodgrass and Mark McCaffrey provided demonstrations and imparted their knowledge from many years of experience, covering site preparation, planting and maintenance. Thank you to all involved in this important workshop.
The most important news now is that we have a nursery full of 'ready to go' seedlings and what is looking like ideal conditions for tree planting. So if you are thinking of planting this year, get your site prepared and your tree application in to TREAT. See you at the nursery or at the many community plantings organised for this season.
TREAT's Christmas Party
For those of you who are unable to come to the nursery on a Friday, I will briefly describe our usual morning.
Everybody is busy cleaning seed, potting up seedlings at the potting benches, washing used pots and trays, or out in the bays weeding pots or tip pruning to keep the stock in top condition. A few have taken on the role of preparing morning tea so that at 9.30am, the bell rings and we all stop for a cuppa with sandwiches, cakes, fruit and other goodies, as well as a chance to catch up with friends.
At Christmas, we designate a special morning close to the last Friday before the 25th when little work gets done and the emphasis is on the food and the chat. This year was no exception and over 70 people came to the nursery on 16th to celebrate a year well done. TREAT provides the main fare with the money donated over the previous weeks in the 'smoko tin', and over the last couple of years Mandy Bormolini has done a fantastic job of organising the food: fabulous cheese platters, cold meats, colourful fruit platters, pate and an enormous array of crackers, bread sticks and nibbles. Many of our regulars are wonderful cooks and provide desserts to die for: delicate pastries, cheesecakes, chocolate sponges and beautiful sweets. Others top up the tables with sausage rolls, chicken pieces, nuts and sandwiches. Safe to say we have an overwhelming choice of delicious treats, all beautifully displayed and thought out.
Conversations flowed with the cups of tea and there was an incredible buzz as everybody enjoyed the food and chatted with friends. At about 10.30am we broke the informal chat by ringing the bell again to thank everyone for their hard work and contributions throughout the year as well as at the party. Nick did the same from QPWS and Geoff Errey read an amusing poem he had written about volunteering after retirement. A raffle was held for garden products vouchers kindly donated by Lakeside Garden Centre, then it was back to the food and conversations before it was all seamlessly cleared away and people drifted off to their own Christmas preparations.
A fabulous morning by anyone's standards.
JUST TWO HOURS
This will be our fifteenth Christmas on the Tablelands A milestone that we thought would see us out. Back then, we thought by 70 we'd scarce be fit to stand That Ozcare would be home we had no doubt. Anticipation of some gentle work around the yard Was all that we expected when we bought Our little piece of paradise, that shouldn't be too hard Then read a book; the non-cerebral sort. We thought a slow and quiet decline would mark retirement years Senility would loom up through the murk But boredom and inaction are the least of all our fears I don't know where we found the time to work. First. She who shall be nameless saw a sad and urgent plea While reading through the Eacham Times one day “The Guides will soon be leaderless, we'll have to close you see” The rest of course is history, as they say. “Two hours a week is all it takes,” the ad went on to state A sentence somewhat careless with the truth 'Cos I do that much, while I watch the quick unceasing rate The nameless one's regressing back to youth. Then next our kindly neighbours, thinking that we might be bored Invited us to spend some time at TREAT “Just two hours on a Friday”. Yeah, I've heard that one before Just cue it up, and set it on 'Repeat'. “You could come on the committee, maybe write a press release So people know just what we do all day.” And as for washing pots, well that is something that don't cease I'm sure the buggers breed when I'm away. Then someone mentioned U3A, a place where we could go And spend two hours in tuning up our brain Till that became “Please run a course on something that you know Like crosswords”. Dammit, here we go again. Golf's become a fixture, twice a week I'm on the course There's exercise aerobics at the pool I guess they keep me from the pub and getting on the sauce In the dictionary there's my photo next to “Fool”. I'm sure that everybody's got a story that's as sad Where “Just two hours” has suddenly become An all-consuming feeling that somehow you've just been had Your life of leisure's now spent on the run. Volunteering at the Info Centre, doing SES Or Lions, Meals on Wheels, the list goes on Till you get up to a place where you can find the time to rest And look around for someone new to con.
