ACT woodlands are nationally significant, with some of the biggest, best connected, most botanically diverse examples of their type.
The White Box-Yellow Box-Blakely's Red Gum Grassy Woodland in the ACT are some of the best remaining examples of this Threatened Ecological Community in Australia. They exist within the ACT Reserve System, urban lands and on our rural leased land.
Priorities for the ACT's woodlands are:
- improving connectivity and wildlife corridors
- restoring habitat through revegetation and restoration, reintroducing woody debris and surface rock, and weed and pest animal control
- retaining mature trees in the landscape
- recovery of threatened and declining bird, mammal and plant populations
- increasing community understanding and appreciation of the importance, ecology and cultural heritage of box gum woodlands,
- understanding the causes of dieback
