How do I know what type of tree I’m monitoring?
The vast majority of hollows that you will see will occur in gum trees. These could be species of Eucalyptus, Corymbia or Angophora trees. You might also see some plane trees or palm trees with hollows in them as well (although any other large and old tree can also form a hollow). We will teach you how to recognise some common trees in the workshop, however there are also websites that will help you identify your tree http://plantnet.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/. If you are unsure we will try to identify it for you (e.g. as a Eucalypt, we won’t identify it to species). Provide as much information on the tree as you can and include a photo.
