Feral deer
Feral deer
There has been some success in removing the deer from the Centenary suburbs but it is a difficult task.  

They are becoming more and more wide-spread and are much bolder.  They continue to be very destructive to Bushcare Groups' revegetation and cause serious soil erosion in the reserves.  they have damaged many street trees by stripping off and eating the bark.  They have been the cause of a couple of traffic accidents.  CDEA feels that more funding and people are needed to address this fast-growing problem.  We will continue to lobby Council to rid the Centenary suburbs of deer.  The deer arrived in 2000.

Save the trees from deer damage with knitted tree protectors !

 Feral deer often strip the bark off native trees in urban bushland and also off street trees around Brisbane. 

Jindalee Bushcare Group, which restores large areas of the Mount Ommaney Bushland Reserve, is putting
knitted protectors around trees whose trunks have been partially stripped by feeding deer. This is to
prevent further damage to the trees and to save them from being completely ringbarked which would kill
them. So far, this experiment has been successful!
There are so many affected trees, that the group would  appreciate some help in knitting the protectors.
Get out your yarn left over from knitting winter  and start knitting! Or you can crochet…
