Habitat Hectares

To ensure decisions concerning the removal of native vegetation are made in an appropriate and consistent manner, the Habitat Hectares assessment methodology was developed by the State Government in 2004.

The Habitat Hectares assessment methodology allows for the calculation of native vegetation losses and gains (a value provided in ‘habitat hectares’ and number of trees) required to complete a Net Gain Assessment.

The Habitat Hectares assessment methodology is a quantitative and qualitative methodology for assessing the condition and conservation significance of native vegetation.

Under the Habitat Hectares Assessment methodology, vegetation is classified as:

  • A remnant patch,
  • A scattered tree, or
  • Degraded treeless vegetation.

NOTE: The Habitat Hectares assessment methodology should be undertaken by suitably qualified and experienced personnel with a current ‘Habitat Hectares Competency Accreditation’ from DSE.
