Bencubbin, WA​

Balardong NOONGAR COUNTRY​

Bencubbin is located in the Wheatbelt of Western Australia, approximately 270 kilometres north-east of Perth. This 22 hectare planting site is part of a larger property owned by a local farming family. Since the 1900s, this region has been extensively cleared for agriculture, causing a range of environmental issues. By planting a diverse mix of native species, the aim of this project is to create a natural wind buffer to reduce erosion, improve soil quality, and restore biodiversity. After 25 years the landholders will be able to harvest the valuable sandalwood timber, creating a mutually beneficial restoration model for all involved.

Since 2018, over 16,000 seedlings and 51 kg of seed have been planted across the project site. Additional Acacia acuminata (‘Jam Wattle’) seedlings and sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) seed will be planted this winter to bulk up patchy areas.
