The National Trust’s Bushland Management Services (BMS) was established in 1976 and has been running continuously for over 39 years.
The National Trust’s position as a public advocate for conservation of natural heritage demonstrates its commitment to principal. The National Trust actively commenced bushland management in 1976 when Joan Bradley a pioneer of Bush Regeneration, was employed by the National Trust to supervise a pilot scheme to regenerate a remnant of Blue Gum Forest at the Trust owned Ludovic Blackwood Memorial Sanctuary in Beecroft.
Today Bushland Management Services (BMS) has grown to be an independent business unit within the National Trust. We are a reliable and trusted team with extensive experience in the field of bushland restoration, promoting innovative bushland management practices. Excess monies raised from our services are dedicated back into the National Trust to fund conservation of our natural, cultural and built heritage.
The National Trust’s Bushland Management Services (BMS) has been running continuously for over 38 years.
