This large-scale native revegetation project in Silverdale, included the revegetation of 18ha of marginal land in association with a 3-lot rural subdivision. The revegetation was designed to reconnect a series of bush remnants, incorporating the full length of a stream, and providing a valuable ecological buffer to a large expanse of kauri forest.

The project began in 2008.  More than a decade later the planting is now well advanced and naturalized with the original plant mix now being interspersed with naturally regenerating species including tree fern, nikau, pigeonwood and larger forest species including totara, puriri, kauri and kahikatea.
