It takes about 100 years for a seedling to germinate into a large tree with hollows for our wildlife.
As part of the City's local biodiversity corridor, the City is linking bushlands together as stepping stones to provide habitat and ecosystem resilience for the local wildlife and out city's ecosystem health. Whilst planting more trees along the corridors is the best long term option, the City has also been finding opportunities to install fauna boxes in our local and regional corridors.
Local Natural Areas (LNA) within the Swan River Precinct are closely linked with the Swan River. The river acts as a corridor linking the Swan Coastal Plain to the Eastern Hills .
Regional ecological linkages, link protected regionally significant natural areas by retaining the best condition LNAs available between them that can act as stepping stones for flora and fauna.
