Borden, WA


The town of Borden lies on the edge of the Stirling Range National Park in the Great Southern Region of Western Australia. This area is largely affected by salt and erosion caused by the clearing of native vegetation and grazing of stock over many generations.

This 10-hectare site is part of a working farm that is experiencing declining productivity as a result of the rising water table and increased salinity. We are working alongside the team at Threshold Environmental to restore the land and test how well a variety of native trees grow and sequester carbon in varying salinity. 

In the winter of 2020, more than 23,000 salt-tolerant native seedlings were planted across the site including several Atriplex, Eucalyptus and Melaleuca species. The site is showing good progress and further monitoring is scheduled for early 2022.
