Protecting and removing native plants

In some areas, native plants might need to be removed and relocated before development begins. You can check if these requirements apply to your land by using the MSA Levy Estimator and selecting the 'MSA salvage and translocation' layer.

Our team will arrange to do this at no cost to the landowner, we just require access to the land. Please contact our Conservation team on msa.bioconservation@delwp.vic.gov.au.
