Abzeco qualified, competent botanists and ecologists can undertake your vegetation quality and condition measurements for vegetation removal assessments required under the Victorian Planning Provisions.

The method used to assess vegetation planned for removal or to establish native vegetation offset sites in Victoria is the Habitat Hectare system, which is used to inform reporting under the Victorian Guidelines for the removal, destruction or lopping of native vegetation (the Guidelines) which are incorporated into all Victorian Planning Schemes.

The Habitat Hectare (HHa) assessment is a site-based measure of quality and condition of native vegetation that is assessed against benchmarks provided by the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA) for the relevant native vegetation type.

All Abzeco staff are both experienced and accredited as competent to undertake HHa assessments having completed and maintained the DEECA Vegetation Quality Assessment (VQA) HHa training and competency check.
