Luida Court Park - Offset Tree Planting

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.

Key benefits

Koala food & habitat, wildlife corridor connectivity, improved green infrastructure network function, endangered riparian rainforest.

About the Green Infrastructure Network Delivery Program

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 ecological connectivity.

Green Infrastructure Network Delivery Program provides economic, social and environmental benefits for Moreton Bay Region.
