Hollows can be accelerated or modified to make them more useful sooner rather than later. A normal hollow may take hundreds of years to form suitable habitat for a home. Or some hollows may simply collapse and have never had the right mix of criteria for a good hollow home  – what a waste of a good opportunity!

Treetec arborists and ecologists can identify suitable swellings, wounds and damage on trees that may be able to be enhanced or modified to form immediate hollows suitable for an range of wildlife species. All whilst caring and managing the trees health and longevity as a wildlife home.
