STRATHBOGIE RANGES TREE HEALTH SURVEY

Help us protect the old trees that make the Strathbogie Ranges such a great place to live.

Climate change could mean that in the future the Strathbogies may be drier and warmer, or hotter and wetter. One of the natural features that are highly valued by the region’s residents, farmers and visitors is it’s big old gum trees.
As well as looking beautiful, these trees provide food, shelter and shade for people, stock and wildlife – but do we take them for granted?
To make sure they are looked after so they can cope with the increased likelihood of fires, droughts or floods, we need you to increase our understanding of what affects their health. Help us record the location and health of the large old trees on private and public land.
This information will then be used to develop management guidelines to maintain them now and into the future.
