River Red Gum Dynamics and Management

River red gums depend on adequate access to water, usually provided by flooding. There are large river red gum forests on the floodplains of the Murray-Darling Basin (e.g. Barmah-Millewa Forest). These require frequent flooding to maintain their sustainability. Many were logged for decades or more which altered their structure. Management of river red gum forests is a complex process of maintaining the condition and viability of river red gums through maintenance of sufficient flow regimes and management of other direct and indirect human impacts (e.g. fire, grazing).
