Choosing a tree is a long-term investment in a landscape, and one of the most ecologically significant choices one can make either in the home garden or in an ecological restoration project. Matt Bright will discuss native tree species that are robust and ecologically important, how these species can support wildlife and recreate valuable habitat, and how to choose good quality trees for your property.
