koala trees for the toowoomba reigon
PLANTING A KOALA FEED TREE ON YOUR PROPERTY CAN HELP SUSTAIN WILD KOALAS INTO THE FUTURE IN THE TOOWOOMBA REIGON
We are often asked which are the best tree types for plant for koalas in the Toowoomba Region, so we have compiled their favourites in the image below. Please keep in mind that this list is just for the greater Toowoomba Region. Koala's are super fussy and they like different native varieties of eucalyptus trees depending on which are they live in. Please consult your local conservation group or nursery to check which are the best species for your area outside of the Toowoomba Region, for the best chance of tree survival and koala food source.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND: Please be mindful that koala feed trees are large eucalyptus trees and not suitable for planting in small or city yards, under power lines or close to neighboring fences
WHERE TO BUY KOALA TREES: We suggest purchasing Koala Feed Trees for planting as tube stock from your local community nursery, where they grow the trees from local wild collected seed. In the Toowoomba Region, the Crows Nest Community Nursery and Peacehaven Park Botanical Nursery are two excellent options along with other local nurseries.
PLANT KOALA FEED TREES WITH LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS:
Joining an environmental group to plant trees is another wonderful way to ensure a successful koala tree planting project. Please remember to return to water the tree in initial stages and care for it into the future to ensure it's survival.
In Toowoomba Groups that participate in tree planting projects include:
