Gardens of Stone Tree Planting

The Green Gully tree planting project faced logistical challenges due to site access and terrain, yet received enthusiastic support from our team members. The initiative was embraced with dedication, with many expressing interest in continuing the area’s rehabilitation. Our approach comprised two phases: initially, we focused on removing old fencing and damaged infrastructure to reduce wildlife entrapment and environmental impact.

Our project aims was to address regrowth weeds and conduct thorough site preparation before replanting the affected areas with native species trees.

This restoration effort was crucial for replacing and repairing the habitat corridor that was lost in previous fires. The impact of this endeavor extended beyond ecological restoration as it directly benefits a diverse range of native mammals that inhabit the region.

Among these are koalas, eastern pygmy-possums, yellow-bellied gliders, squirrel gliders, feathertail gliders, brushtail possums, greater gliders, sugar gliders, short-beaked echidnas, platypuses, bandicoots, common wombats, common wallaroos, brush-tailed rock wallabies, spotted-tailed quolls, swamp wallabies, red-necked wallabies, and Eastern Grey Kangaroos.

By supporting the needs of these park dwellers, our replanting efforts contribute to land stabilisation and foster a healthier ecosystem for both wildlife and the surrounding environment.

Thank you to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife for this grant.
