Merchants Road Riparian Zone Project

These reports can be also be viewed below:

January 2016 Report

View from the bridge – showing typical summer water level and poisoned willows

Poisoned willows above the rocky cascade

Poisoned willows line the creek below Merchants Road

Xanthorrhoea naturally occurring along Merchants Road are being planted by the group in areas with similar orientation and drainage.

Revegetation planting of xanthorrhoea on rocky slope above the creek

Long view along the creek showing poisoned willows and the general condition of the riparian zone undergoing restoration

September 2016 Report

View from the bridge – showing reduced talweg depth and broadened stream bed. Green Army are burning felled willows

View above the rocky cascade. Many of the remaining dead willow trunks and branches have been washed downstream. NO significant erosion in this section

Severe erosion on “the grassy flat” where dead willows which once lined the creek but have not been removed have obstructed flood water flow.

Typical view upstream of the project site close to the entrance to Merchants Road. Fallen trees across the creek have led to debris build up during flood and erosion risk

Some slumping on the edge of Merchants Road downstream of rocky cascade. Note rocky debris in creek bed as a result of erosion upstream

Long view along the creek showing poisoned willows still to be removed and consequent bank erosion and the general condition of the riparian zone following the flood.
