What is Trees For Habitat?
Loss of habitat has had a significant impact on the homes of our native wildlife; threatening their long term survival.
Trees For Habitat plantings provide businesses and individuals with the opportunity to contribute to:
- The creation of native bushland for our vulnerable plants and animals
- The management of soil erosion
- The improvement of water quality.
How does Trees For Habitat work?
Plant a tree on your customers behalf for services or products sold ($3.50 +GST per tree).
Receive a personalised certificate and annual site report on planting progress, including before and after photos, species lists and site observations.
Your donation will be allocated to a Trees For Habitat planting site in Autumn each year. Our Trees For Habitat plantings are established by direct seeding which means for the first few years they may look quite small. However, once they’ve established their strong root system, growth accelerates to form lovely natural looking bushland which improves biodiversity and local habitat value.
Your sponsorship helps our endangered Malleefowl
Our Trees For Habitat sites are located in the Murraylands region of South Australia in the Monarto and South-Ferries Conservation Parks, aimed at helping the local population of Malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata).
This iconic Australian bird is under threat from extensive land clearance, predation by foxes and cats and a changing climate.
We work with local landholders willing to revegetate their properties with native trees and shrubs. By planting in this region we establish bushland corridors which provide a safe passage for the endangered Malleefowl and to create habitat for other threatened species, including:
- Elegant Parrot (Neophema elegans)
- Diamond Firetail (Stagonopleura guttata)
- Purple-Gaped Honeyeater (Lichenostomus cratitius)
- Short-beaked Echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus)
