Native habitat is under considerable pressure, particularly older hollow bearing trees which are vital for many native species who rely on cavities for shelter and breeding. 

So when the opportunity arose to trial some introduced hollows we jumped at it. Arborist Mark Cashmore and the team from Treetec Arboriculture & Ecology has considerable experience introducing hollows into both live and dead trees, he and his team, in partnership with various research bodies,  are learning valuable lessons about introducing cavities, native fauna habitat requirements, tree response and delivering habitat outcomes. Come and hear him speak about Treetec's work in this exciting new field and the recently completed work within Whitehorse reserves and ask him about the ongoing research.
