Located on land traditionally owned by the Dja Dja Wurrung people in Wedderburn, Victoria, this forest is named after the Ploughshare Wattle (Acacia gunnii) found in the area, and plays a vital role in biodiversity protection while building habitat for native wildlife. The planting site adjoins many properties in the region, which are all working to restore the land and fill the gaps in vegetation to build crucial wildlife habitat.
In 2009, Greenfleet direct seeded native species across 262 ha of the property with the aim to create a resilient and biodiverse forest. More than 10 years on, the native forest is growing well, and more than 25 native plant species can be found on the property.
