Tree planting is an important technique of revegetation and rehabilitation.

SouthWest Wildlife Habitats sources seedlings locally, retaining provenance genetics and plants 1000's of trees annually. We plant trees with great care and attention to detail as this is the beginning of your own wildlife habitat, which will brings you hours of enjoyment.

Site Preparation

Initially, we examine the area to be revegetated to determine the best approach to the job. SouthWest Wildlife Habitats also prepares the site to ensure it is free of competitive grasses. Competition is the greatest factor affecting tree establishment, successful tree planting requires the careful selection of the species to be planted in the particular area. Cross ripping the soil and digging holes prior to planting trees considerably aids plant establishment.


All tree planting projects benefit from some form of maintenance watering. SouthWest Wildlife Habitats recommends at least one follow up maintenance to address any "Stress problems" the plants may be experiencing due to lack of water or competition from garsses.


Tree planting provides immediate vegetation cover and allows for the establishment of species that are difficult to germinate through direct seeding techniques.

After Revegetation you will quickly see the benefits of choosing SouthWest Wildlife Habitats for your project. Within the first year, your plants will popping above the bags as their roots take hold and reach down to the fertile soil.

Soon, the birds will return and your own special ecosystem will begin to flourish due to our care and attention to mulching and soil preparation.
