Habitat Creation

Preserving our local native wildlife has become increasingly vital considering the ongoing degradation of our natural ecosystems.

Our habitat creation projects involve various tasks, such as installing wildlife boxes in trees or crafting artificial hollows. The concept of creating man-made habitat trees has gained popularity among homeowners and local councils as a sustainable alternative to tree removal.

In the wild, it can take up to a century for tree hollows to form naturally, yet these hollows are indispensable for the life cycles of numerous native animals. They play a pivotal role in attracting and maintaining indigenous wildlife in urban areas, serving as homes, safe havens, and nesting sites for a diverse range of Australian species, including bats, bees, birds, lizards, and marsupials. These fabricated hollows are incredibly versatile and can be customized to cater to specific species, accounting for factors such as height above the ground, orientation, hollow dimensions, and entrance hole size.

Prestige Pruning boasts expertise in recreating these vital environments for our local fauna and has conducted seminars for councils, offering invaluable guidance on the precise techniques required to effectively replicate these habitats.

If you have concerns about the safety of your trees but don’t want to remove them entirely, our Arborists are readily available to explore potential solutions. They can engage in discussions about strategies to maintain your tree as a habitat for local wildlife while ensuring an acceptable level of risk through specialized pruning techniques.
