Heading to Tassie!

Melbourne Tree Care crews are headed for Tasmania soon to help save the critically endangered Swift Parrot. Many old growth trees have recently been destroyed. We are working with researchers to carve replacement hollows into semi-mature trees.

Data collected by Dr Dejan Stojanovic will help us replicate tree hollows that have been lost from the old growth trees.

New data collected during this project will help establish how effective our tree carving techniques are for saving threatened species.

Thanks to the Victorian Tree Industry Organisation an the Australian National University for supporting this important cause.

This week we are making the first planning trip to set out which trees we will work on.
