Tree planting

Revegetating land increases the area of habitat available for gliders, buffers their existing habitat and reconnects the land enabling them to move more easily between areas.

Increasing habitat

In addition to planting individual trees in existing glider habitat, we work with local communities to revegetate large areas of that landscape by planting entire stands of native trees. This serves to increase and buffer existing habitat and to reconnect the landscape enabling gliders to move more easily between areas.

Since 2013, we have revegetated more than 250 hectares in priority areas between the Kanangra-Boyd National Park and the Wyangala district. New stands of trees are placed in areas where they will have the maximum benefit when mature, such as in locations where they will link habitat containing resident gliders with areas in which they have disappeared. This enables gliders to move back into these forests.

How you can help

You can assist by applying for funding to revegetate cleared areas of your land through our Landholder Grants Program.

If you live outside of an area we are targeting for revegetation you can still get involved by seeking advice and support from one of the organisations participating in Glideways projects, such as the Green Army or our partner, Greening Australia. Also check to see whether your local Landcare group is running a planting day in your area.

Each year we provide funding for local landholders to protect and restore natural connections in the Abercrombie Catchment through our Landholder Grants Program.

Plant a tree

Help to create habitat for a glider by planting a tree on your property. Contact your Local Land Services office to find out which species are suitable for your area and which nurseries sell them.
