Pine wildling control is incredibly important to main quality native forests for local flora and fauna. Many of the forests in South West Victoria have weedy Pine Wildlings invading from nearby Pine plantations. This project site is working in  forest in South West  Victoria. The ecological vegetation class is Heathy Woodland and smaller areas of Heathy Herb rich Woodland which typically have stringy bark as an overstorey species.

These forest communities are important for many fauna species but this work is targeted particularly to sites that are known habitats for the endangered Red Tailed Black Cockatoo. This cockatoo uses the red and brown stringy bark gum nuts as an important food source which overtime are out competed by invading Pine wildlings These forests are also home to emus, kangaroos, wallabies and a wide range of bird species.

The activity involves hiking through beautiful  forest as part of a team, locating pine wildlings recording the location with GPS, treating pines by either hand pulling, lopping or stem injection of adult trees. CVA will provide all training on site so that we have a safe and effective day in the forest.
