The commercial harvest, salvage and propagation of protected whole plants

Sustainable management plan 2013-2017

The plan describes the regulatory framework for managing the commercial harvest, salvage and growing of protected whole plants such as grass trees, cabbage tree palms, staghorns, orchids and macrozamias. Included in the plan are licensing arrangements for people or businesses that extract whole plants, including seeds, from the wild, or propagate whole native plants for sale. The plan also describes the operational framework under which licensed activities can be undertaken including tagging, reporting and site management obligations.

This plan is also approved by the Commonwealth Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities as a wildlife trade management plan and an artificial propagation program under the Commonwealth Government’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
