The regeneration of native forest eucalypt coupes (a discrete area of forest, which is harvested and regenerated) is assessed after three years from planting. The assessments are based on regeneration surveys, which are carried out at one year of age following clearfelling, and at two years of age following partial harvesting. Remedial treatments are implemented if required, and periodic checks of environmental factors (particularly damage caused by mammals through grazing) are undertaken before the coupes are deemed to be successfully regenerated.

Of the 4,808 hectares of native eucalypt coupes treated in 1998-99, some 4,568 hectares (95.0%) were successfully regenerated.
