Monitoring of Snow Gums

Snow Gums Heritage Reserve

Snow Gums Heritage Reserve

In 2001, the existing snow gums in the reserve were measured, using the well-established method of diameter at breast height (DBH). At that time, the first plantings (1999) were not big enough to be measured.

The process was repeated ten years later (2011), and this time the plantings of both 1999 and 2005  had matured enough to be included. Some of the original trees had died, while others had thrived and even produced seedlings of their own.

This file contains a description of the method used, a map locating the transect in the Snow Gums Reserve, and tables of the DBHs for each section of the transect, as well as scale maps of the positions of the trees in each section.
