Expanding bird habitat in the Tablelands
The site has had over 100,000 trees planted in effort to expand suitable habitat for over 40 species of birds that live in the Lake Barrine area, which is a highly restricted habitat space. This was our first planting on this site we will continue to work here in the future to continue the existing efforts here.
The considerations made specific to the site were high sun exposure on exposed hilltop, and requested restricted cattle access as essential to survival of trees.
