Habitat creation in Melbourne

Turn your old trees into new homes for native animals

Nature leaves nothing to waste. Neither should we. Rather than entirely remove your old, dead or cracking trees, allow us to convert them into safe, attractive sanctuaries for local native wildlife.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my tree habitat attract pests?

Your new tree habitat will attract all kinds of local animals looking for shelter. Some of them are likely to be pests. However, it’s important to remember that biodiverse sites become self-sustaining — the pest population will be kept in check by their natural predators.

We can also help keep away certain types of pests. For example, we can install possum tree guards on your trees to prevent them from nesting near your site.

How can you turn unsafe trees into safe habitats?

Dead and dying trees are liable to fall or to drop dead branches. Before we turn them into wildlife habitats, our tree pruning team will identify and remove dangerous branches and cut the tree down to habitat size. 

Can you turn tree stumps into wildlife habitats?

Yes, we can turn tree stumps into wildlife habitats. We can either relocate the tree stumps to a more suitable location or leave them where they lie for the local wildlife to discover.

Can you use my tree waste for a habitat somewhere else?

Yes, we can. We work with councils and wildlife reserves around Melbourne to create new native wildlife habitats.
