Why Choose a Nest Box for your Tree?
Australia is currently experiencing a housing shortage, not only for people but for wildlife as well. Many animals like birds, possums and bats rely on tree hollows in which to breed and live, however trees with hollows are on the decline. Hollows only form in very old trees, and so with widespread clearing for farming, timber production or development many old trees are removed affecting a number of wildlife.
