Felling Habitat Tree

Felling Habitat Tree

During the process of our works clearing the trees for the Sapphire to Woolgoolga Upgrade of the Pacific Highway in NSW we are required to remove trees that have been identified by the Project Ecologists as possibly being inhabited by the locally indigenous fauna. Trees that have been identified as “Habitat Trees” are left standing completely isolated after all other vegetation has been removed for 48 Hours. This time period encourages the wildlife to move on to less exposed trees that are not in the clearing envelope. Once the 48 hour period is up the Project Ecologists (Benchmark Environmental Services) attend site and supervise the felling of the “Habitat Trees” and carry out inspections of the trees once on the ground to rescue any animals that may still inhabit the trees. During this process our crews work closely with the Ecologists to gently move portions of the tree to assist in the recovery process or to relocate hollows with native bee hives (Trigona carbonaria). This process has been extremely successful, in most cases the animals have moved on by the time the trees are felled. However, when animals are encountered these have in all cases been successfully rescued and released. Some of the species rescued to date include the following:
•Green Tree Snakes
•Carpet Pythons
•Green Tree Frogs
•Brushtail Possums
•Squirrel Gliders
•Sugar Gliders
•Ringtail Possums
•Scaly Breasted Lorikeets
•Water Dragons

Children's and Carpet Pythons
All Pythons area non-venomous. The Children's python was named not because it is a particularly good snake for children, although it is, but rather after the scientist John George Children, who was responsible for the zoological collection at the British Museum in the first half of the 19th century. It was he who identified this particular group of pythons. Children's python is the common name given to the four native Australian pythons of the genus Antaresia. Antaresia childreni and Antaresia maculosa are the most commonly kept.
Children's pythons are not tree dwellers, preferring to shelter in crevices or burrows.
Pythons are relatively placid, however like all snakes they will strike and can bite if they feel in danger. Snakes can have their own personality and whilst some are extremely placid, others are more aggressive.
Carpet pythons have a wide distribution across Australia. They occupy a number of different types of habitat and are usually nocturnal. Because they are attracted to vermin, carpet pythons are often found around human habitats. Carpet pythons are commonly arboreal species, that is they live in the trees.
Temperament: Not known to be aggressive. Non-venomous. Treat gently and with respect.
Lifespan: 25-30 years
