Grid Reference E4633 S52633. Altitude 350m.

Site Description: Young eucalypt saplings form a dominant canopy of about 10 m height.  There is a high density of stems of both eucalypt and understorey species (mainly Acacia dealbata) and intense competition for light and very little groundcover.  Natural thinning will dramatically decrease the number of individuals over the next 5-10 years.
