Council has planted 3.5 hectares of legally protected koala food & habitat trees and lowland rainforest at Luida Court Park at Samford.
This green infrastructure project delivers important wildlife habitat along the Samford Creek Habitat Corridor. The plant communities established include endangered regional ecosystem (RE) 12.3.1 - dominated by rainforest trees; and ‘of concern’ regional ecosystem (RE) 12.3.11 - dominated by Queensland blue gum, grey gum and paperbark trees.
Koala food & habitat, wildlife corridor connectivity, improved green infrastructure network function, endangered riparian rainforest.

About the Green Infrastructure Network Delivery
Council's Green Infrastructure Network Delivery Program improves
road safety for motorists and wildlife by constructing fauna
movement underpasses, fauna rope bridges, roadside (animal
exclusion) fencing, animal refuge poles, nest box habitat, pavement
stencilling for driver awareness, monitoring equipment and habitat
enhancement around these capital investments.
In addition, the green infrastructure network program delivers
large-scale tree planting projects (environmental offsets) to
counterbalance the impact of council projects; and street tree
planting to reduce the urban heat island effect & increase
Green Infrastructure Network Delivery Program provides
economic, social and environmental benefits for Moreton Bay
