Natural regeneration means allowing or assisting the bush to grow back by itself. It is the most effective and most economical way to expand patches of native vegetation and improve their condition.
Each site is different, and techniques and methods are tailored to suit the ecosystem being restored (e.g. grassland, rainforest, woodland, wetland etc), and the type of threats being managed.
