Since 2016, the Paddock Tree Project has helped heal the land by restoring the scattered trees that are synonymous with the low rainfall grazing country in the Northern and Eastern Mount Lofty Ranges. The primary aim of the project is to provide critical habitat for a range of ground foraging woodland bird species whose numbers have declined significantly in the region in the past ten years.
By undertaking broad-scale restoration of low rainfall grassy woodland habitat in areas we know the birds are present, and in partnership with landholders, we hope to curb the current trend and maintain habitat for these precious woodland bird species into the future.
The Paddock Tree Project video and Impact Report provide an overview of the work undertaken so far. More information about the project and landholder resources are available on the Paddock Tree Projects page.
