Big Sky Country
From little trees, climate resilience grows
Show Notes

The climate has always changed. But in recent years, these changes have gotten drastically faster and more noticeable. So much so that, in some cases, they are causing trees to die.  

Grey Box and Yellow Box trees form the eucalypt backbone of Bush Heritage's Nardoo Hills Reserve on Dja Dja Wurrung country in central Victoria, providing crucial habitats for all sorts of woodland birds, insects and tree-dwelling mammals. So, when the woodlands began to die in 2008 and again in 2014, Bush Heritage scientists and volunteers devised a plan: an innovative climate-ready experiment to help keep trees in the landscape as temperatures rise and rainfall decreases.

Guests:  Dr Garry McDonald, Dr Kate Fitzherbert & Harley Douglas
