Trees are usually tall with a single trunk at the base and a canopy of branches and leaves at the top. Australia has thousands of species of native trees including eucalypts, wattles, she-oaks and paper barks.
Trees produce leaves, seeds and nectar that provide food for many animals. Alive or dead they provide nest sites including hollows for mammals, birds and reptiles.
Most trees take around 100 years to form tree hollows. An artificial hollow can be provided by a nest box. Each animal has specific requirements for a nest box.
