Additionally, 18,700 fire-damaged plants including trees have been replanted throughout urban roads and urban parklands since the January 2003 bushfires.

(2) The following local native tree species have been used:

Casuarina cunninghmaniana

Eucalyptus blakeleyi

Eucalyptus bridgesiana

Eucalyptus manninfera

Eucalyptus melliodora

Eucalyptus polyanthemos

Eucalyptus rossii

Eucalyptus viminalis

The above has been selected for their suitability to local climate and soil conditions, and to reflect the local plant communities of which they form a part.

In areas considered vulnerable to fire, tree characteristics were considered in relation to fire spread and capacity to regenerate after a fire event. For sites of considerable ecological value, stock has been grown from locally sourced seed.

(3) (a) 8000 trees (trunk diameter >100 mm) were removed to facilitate the Gungahlin Drive Extension. A total number of 16,000 trees are to be planted either along the route of the GDE corridor or along main roads under the current tree planting project.

(b) Tree losses relating to the January 2003 bushfires within Department of Urban Services land management areas, such as Urban roads and parklands are estimated to be in the order of 13,000.
