Property reports and vegetation mapping
The vegetation management framework is supported by a number of maps. However, there are 3 main maps that are used to identify vegetation and areas of land that can or cannot be cleared:
- Regulated vegetation management map. This map show vegetation categories that determine what can be cleared and how the clearing activity can be undertaken.
- Vegetation management supporting map. This is a combined map displaying the regional ecosystem mapping (i.e. plant communities), the location of mapped wetlands, watercourses and drainage features, and essential habitat mapping. This map is also used to determine what can be cleared and how the clearing activity can be undertaken.
- Property maps of assessable vegetation (PMAVs). These are property-scale maps that show the boundaries of vegetation categories on a property. These maps are created following an agreement between the landholder and Queensland Government.
The regulated vegetation management map and the vegetation management supporting map are generally updated annually. These updates use the latest high-resolution satellite imagery and scientific data to ensure continuous improvement and accuracy in the vegetation mapping.
Areas that have a PMAV applied are not affected by changes to the regulated vegetation management map.
