Tree Planting for Wildlife Tree Day Site Details

Tree Planting for Wildlife

The Pioneer Creek restoration project is rehabilitating Pioneer Creek by planting of key food plants that support nomadic pollinators including the Swift Parrot and Regent Honeyeater. The project aims to provide seasonal foraging resources for fauna, including the Squirrel Glider which is known from the reserve. This will be the fourth National Tree Day event we have run! This year we will continue to plant trees along Pioneer Creek, which forms a new wildlife corridor. The trees we planted three years ago are already above our heads and provide nice shade spots! Some of our planted trees are already flowering and attracting wildlife. Meanwhile in the understorey, we have seen native bandicoots move into our planted area. We aim to plant over 250 trees and shrubs like Eucalyptus, Banksia and Acacia. The planting area is located on the banks of Pioneer Creek in a former cow paddock.
