This project aims to implement a Casuarina obesa timber plantation in a manner that encourages wildlife usage while maintaining production values.
This site will look at using a Casuarina obesa timber plantation to create a wildlife corridor within the landscape. While Cas. obesa, a native tree species in the Wheatbelt, is the primary species planted other species have been added to give strata diversity to encourage local biodiversity into the plantation.
The biodiversity value of this site will be monitored at establishment in 2014 and again in 2017.
Project outputs will be added once the trial has been completed.
