Paddock Tree Project in partnership with Cowra Woodland Bird Program
Paddock trees across our landscape are disappearing and not being replaced. They play an extremely important role in our environment and have a number of benefits for productivity as well as conservation including pest control, salinity management, stock and crop shelter, improved soil structure, tree hollows and an important food source for birds and animals.
The aim of this project is to further develop connectivity through the landscape to improve movement and habitat of woodland birds by planting local species of eucalypt trees. The trees must be planted within 50 m of each other and need to connect remnants i.e. roadside vegetation and an existing mature paddock tree. Mesh and star posts will be provided to successful applicants.
This project has been fully allocated.
