Plant a Small Tree
Action: Plant a Small Tree in your garden.
Our definition of a small habitat tree is one that can grow up to 5 metres.
Habitat Value: Level 4
Shelter and Food
For most gardens, Medium and Small Habitat Trees are a high scoring ReWild activity.
The ReWild scoring system only measures your impact with the resources available to your site; people with tiny gardens or balconies can still earn a high ReWild score without planting trees.
The Level 4 habitat value reflects the high food and shelter value to wildlife, including mammals, birds, insects and pollinators.
Small trees can take more than a decade to reach maturity, but will start providing significant habitat value within three or four years.
It is important that you include any existing trees (particularly natives) in your initial ReWild site survey.
Before planting a tree, always check with with Water Corporation and Dial Before You Dig before deciding what and where to plant.
