Approximately 300+ species of wildlife use tree hollows throughout Australia. Tree hollows are of great importance as they are used as nesting sites, shelters and safe refuges. Hollows can present as a small crack or split to very a large cavity in the tree. (Gibbons & Lindenmayer, 2002).
The Arboricultural Industry has gradually become aware of the importance of a habitat trees as part of an active ecosystem. The creation of artificial habitat hollows in dead, dying or living trees is developing rapidly within our Industry.
When managing large dead trees in urban environment, a current management practice is to reduce the tree to a point where it is unlikely to present a risk to people and infrastructure. These trees are usually dead, dying or declining and are left as habitat trunks or a minimised canopy. The habitat trunk has a high proportion of sound wood (very little decay) which has very little value to wildlife, as there are very few usable hollows.
Natural hollows are formed by the process of failure and decay within a tree. It can take up to 120 -150 years in many tree species for natural hollows to develop (Mackauski 1984, Stoneman et al.1097, Warnington and Lamb1999 in Gibbons & Lindenmayer, 2002). By developing a range of strategies it is possible to shorten this long term decay process and provide natural looking habitat by creating artificial wildlife hollows
MNC Trees has had the pleasure of creating artificial habitat hollows in retainable tree trunks at a number of sites throughout the Port Macquarie Hastings Region. From platforms for Ospreys, micro bat mazes/hideouts to larger sized hollows to attract possums, owls and larger birds. We will be sharing some of the projects on the website and our Facebook page over the next months.
The project below was undertaken this December for our customers in King Creek who are avid bird watchers and have a deep passion for the nature in their back yard. Rather than removing the whole trunk of the large lightening struck Grey Gum, not only did the client save in the overall price for removal, but they also have a large artificial habitat hollow & bat hide out (forgot to take a photo ): ): ): ) which would take anywhere from 120-150 years to occur naturally.
MNC TREES have been out helping clean up the devastation after a huge wind storm which hit just 3 nights before x.mas. Thus far we have been undertaking council, private and insurance clean up works. We have serviced Hannam Vale, Kundle Kundle, Taree, Harington, Rollands Planes, Telegraph Point, North Haven, Dungbogan, Pappinbarra, Moorland, Johns River and the list goes on. Our new Avant 745 speiclaised Arborist loader arrived just in time to allow us to supply a superior service to our loyal customers. If you have any storm damage works from up in the canopy on the ground to large uprooted root plates, please get in touch.
