Mt Jersey (Site: 59)

Site of State Significance
Warm Temperate Rainforest

Large Stands at edge of altitude range / Some logging evident.

Good site with a southern aspect on Mt Jersey in a foothill area near Goongerah. The 1997 East Gippsland Regional Forest Agreement placed a large part of this site in an informal Special Protection Zone. However forest in Joy Ck and some rainforest stands along Dead Calf Creek are still in State Forest and may be logged. In the mid 90's logging occurred within the Mt Jersey 'Special Protection Zone'.

GoogleEarth images

The Rainforest EVC (Ecological Vegetation Class) and RSOS boundaries have been overlayed onto Google Earth imagery to produce images that give a three dimensional perspective of the landscape where rainforest communities exist in East Gippsland. (Note: Rainforest EVC colour code is not consistent for all images.)
